To change information
Description
On a yellow disc 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in diameter, eight orange rays behind a blue snow-capped mountain peak, all inset 1/8 inch (.32 cm).

Symbolism
The design elements were taken from the Great Seal of the State of Montana. The mountain peaks allude to “Montana” a Spanish word for mountain.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, Montana National Guard on 27 May 1952. It was redesignated for all nondivisional units of the Montana National Guard on 2 September 1955. The insignia was redesignated on 30 December 1983, for Headquarters, State Area Command, Montana Army National Guard. It was redesignated effective 1 October 2003, for the Montana Army National Guard Element, Joint Forces Headquarters and amended to update the description and add a symbolism. (TIOH Dwg.
