To change information
Description
On a blue disc edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border, 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in diameter overall, a white star within an open garland composed of a branch of oak and a branch of laurel both white, the crossed branches surmounted above their point of intersection and below the star by a wreath of six twists, alternating white and red.

Symbolism
The design is an adaptation of the seal of Texas, the “Lone Star State.”

Background

It was redesignated for Headquarters, State Area Command, Texas Army National Guard on 30 December 1983. It was redesignated effective 1 October 2003, for the Texas Army National Guard Element, Joint Force Headquarters and amended to update the description and add a symbolism. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-180)
