U.S. Army Engineer Command, Europe, A-1-502

U.S. Army Engineer Command, Europe, A-1-000

On a blue upright rectangle 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width, semicircular at the top and with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border all around, a white three pointed castle tower charged with a blue five pointed star, single point uppermost, above a red base with four battlements fimbriated white.
Scarlet and white are the colors of the Corps of Engineers. The blue background denotes the unit’s origin in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The white tower silhouette represents the famous Eschenheimer Tower landmark of Frankfurt, Germany, where the Command was permanently established and the star alludes to the unit’s status as a permanent major activity under the direct control of the Commander in Chief, U.S. Army Europe. The four battlements rising on the wall of the defensive fortification are inspired by the Engineer’s castle insignia and further represent the multi-missions of the Command.
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 30 July 1968. It was amended to change the description on 16 August 1968.
