316th Sustainment Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a white disc within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in diameter overall, a representation of a compass rose, the four cardinal points and center blue and the secondary points red, bearing on the center a white fleur-de-lis.

Symbolism
The compass rose alludes to the ability of the Command to move, quarter, and provision forces at any point of the compass. The fleur-de-lis which traditionally is used at the north point of the compass, also represents the iris, the State flower of Tennessee, the birthplace of the unit.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 316th Logistical Command on 26 October 1954. It was redesignated for the 316th Sustainment Command with the description and symbolism updated on 13 November 2006. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-41)
