Origin/meaning

Silver Gray and Or are the colours assicoated with the Finance Corps. The counterchanging symbolises flexibility. The Mountain implies stength and support. The Roundels symbolises coins and are divided into two colours to suggest the number of the Battalion. Red, yellow and green are colours traditionally associated with Vietnam campaigns and recall the unit's service and honours. The lozenges in the shape of a star indicated the Battalion's five awards. The Coat of Arms was approved 18 October 1993 and was amended to correct the blazon of the Shield on 22 October 1993.
