Origin/meaning

Shield: Scarlet and white are the colors of the Corps of Engineers. The cross, taken from the arms of Savoy, Italy, and the four points of the lozenge symbolize the organization's participation in four campaigns in Italy during World War II. The motto translates to "Glory in Achievement."

Crest: The upright sword represents the unit's war service in Vietnam. The crossed bamboo poles symbolize the general support, rebuilding and construction projects of the 92d Engineer Battalion. The green disc alludes to the tropical region and the five-pointed star represents the four Meritorious Unit Commendations and the Vietnamese Civil Action Medal awarded the unit.

The Coat of Arms and Distinctive Unit Insignia was approved on 19 January 1956. The Coat of Arms was amended on 14 June 1974, to add a crest.
