The red saltire, suggested by the Florida State flag, is taken from the coat of arms of the 124th Infantry Regiment from which the Battalion is descended. The green disk alludes to the islands of the Pacific, the two crossed bolos referring to the unit's two Pacific battle honors of World War II. The blue stripes (blue is the Infantry color) refer to the Distinguished Unit and Philippine Presidential Citations awarded the Battalion while serving as Infantry.
