210th Field Artillery Brigade, A-1-651

Description/Blazon
Centered vertically on a disc 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in diameter divided saltirewise yellow and scarlet, a black silhouetted cannon barrel, muzzle at top, between two yellow crescents with horns outward, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) wide yellow border.
Symbolism
Yellow and scarlet are the colors used for Artillery. The black vertical cannon barrel and the crossed lines, symbolic of a sighting device, suggest accuracy and firepower; the crescents suggest high trajectory and long distance. The crescents and crosswise division further allude to the Roman numeral for 210, the unit's numerical designation.
Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 210th Field Artillery Brigade effective 16 September 1980. It was redesignated effective 16 November 2006, for the 210th Fires Brigade with the description updated.
