Blue and scarlet, with silver (white), represent the United States. Red also stands for courage and sacrifice. The dual responsibilities of citizenship and military service are denoted by the two sabres, and the integration of peaceful with soldierly vocations is represented by the tree on the shield. The nature of these two-fold duties is further symbolized by the division and counter change of the shield, which also recalls the motto of the Command. The tree represents the pursuit and preservation of peace through strength, endurance and growth.
