Origin/meaning

Shield: The five divisions at the top of the shield, in the orange and white colors of the Signal Corps, stand for the battalion's five World War II battle honors. The ten divisions in base in the red and blue of the Korean Taeguk refer to the battalion's decorations (Two ROK Presidential Unit Citations) awarded for service in that area. The crest is the badge of the old 2d Signal Company. The carabao head is for service during the Philippine Insurrection while the six fleurs-de-lis commemorate the campaigns in France during World War I.

The Coat of Arms and distinctive Unit Insignia was originally approved on 16 February 1959. They was amended to correct the symbolism and update the description on 26 March 2002.
