The American continents highlight the Western Hemisphere and represent the organization's mission to provide education and training to eligible personnel of nations of the Western Hemisphere. The Maltese cross, the insignia of Columbus who discovered the Americas, is adapted from the insignia of the previous organization, the United States Army School of the Americas and denotes the heritage of the Western Hemisphere for Security Cooperation.
