ShieldThe shield of the coat of arms for the 224th Infantry Regiment, differenced by a blue border, is used to indicate the descent of the 161st Armored Infantry Battalion from the 3d Battalion of that organization. In the designing of the coat of arms of the 224th Infantry Regiment, the basic design of the shield of the coat of arms of the 185th Infantry Regiment, in reverse colors with the carabao head added to symbolize service in the Philippine Islands during World War II, was used to indicate descent from the latter organization. The chevron and fleur-de-lis on the canton indicate World War I service of the units from which the 185th Infantry Regiment descended. The colors blue and white are used for Infantry.
CrestThe crest is that of the California Army National Guard.
The coat of arms was approved on 14 March 1955. It was amended to correct the blazon of the shield on 1 September 1955. It was rescinded on 10 August 1961.
