280TH SIGNAL BATTALION, DELAWARE ARMY NATIONAL GUARD

Coat of arms (crest) of the 280th Signal Battalion, Delaware Army National Guard

Official blazon

Shield: Argent, three lightning flashes conjoined in base Tenné, a chief of the last two laurel branches crossed in saltire of the first.
Crest:
Motto: HONOR DUTY CONSTANCY.

Distinctive Unit Insignia. Description: A silver color metal and enamel device 1 3/16 inches (3.02cm) in width overall consisting of three orange lightning flashes conjoined in base and surmounting a silver wreath of laurel enclosed in base by an orange tripartite scroll, the sections folded over on each other and inscribed "HONOR DUTY CONSTANCY" in silver letters.

Origin/meaning

Orange and white are the colors traditionally associated with the Signal Corps. The lightning flashes symbolize speed and communications; joined together they form a strong base and, branching out from this central point, they suggest versatility and scope. The laurel branches allude to excellence of achievement and the highest values and efforts of a military unit.

The arms were approved on 17 January 1980, and the Distictive Unit Insignia on 6 June 1978.
