Origin/meaning

Oriental blue and silver gray (silver) are the colors traditionally used by the Military Intelligence branch. The checky field refers again to the branch, symbolizing the mission of the intelligence maneuvers and activities. The motto is emphasized by the head of the warrior with helmet raised from the face to denote clarity of vision and heightened perception. Black signifies resolve and strength of purpose, white integrity.

The Coat of Arms and Distinctive Unit Insignia was approved effective 1 September 1996.
