Description
Centered on a light blue square, edged white within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border (the square 2 3/8 inches (6.03 cm) on a side) and turned on its diagonal axis, a white magnolia blossom with yellow center and with green leaves forming the lower angle of the square behind a black trident with white detail and outline.

Symbolism
The magnolia blossom is the State flower of Mississippi and Neptune's trident is symbolic of the great river, Neptune being known in mythology as the "Father of Waters." The light blue of the background is for Infantry.

It was redesignated for Headquarters, State Area Command, Mississippi Army National Guard on 30 December 1983. The insignia was redesignated effective 1 October 2003, for the Mississippi Army National Guard Element, Joint Force Headquarters and amended to update the description. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-296)
