ShieldScarlet and white are the colors used for the Corps of Engineers. The bayonet and chevron allude to the unit's mission to provide engineer combat support. The chevron simulates a mountain peak symbolizing Mount Hood, and other natural wonders of the Cascade Mountains all in the area of the 1249th Engineer Battalion headquarters at Salem, Oregon. The ermine spots further symbolize Oregon, known since the early fur trading days as "The Beaver State."
CrestThe crest is that of the Oregon Army National Guard.
The coat of arms was approved on 1 November 1973.
