Description/Blazon
On a scarlet vertical rectangle arched at top and bottom with a 1/8 inch scarlet border, 2 inches in width and 3 inches in height overall, a yellow mountain section of three peaks in base and a yellow triangle with point in center base throughout counterchanged; at center above the mountains a scarlet broad arrow point up between stylized aircraft wings and tail section in black.
Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the colors associated with the Air Defense Artillery branch. The ascending arrowhead, apparently meeting and destroying an aircraft in flight, illustrates the basic mission of the Branch. The three peaks in base and V-shape (for five) allude to the unit's numerical designation.
Background
This insignia was approved on 13 Feb 85.
