Coats of arms of U.S. Air Defense Artillery Regiments

Coats of arms of US Air Defense Artillery Regiments are heraldic emblems associated with Field artillery, Air Defense Artillery, and coast artillery regiments in the US Army. By Army regulation, all regiments of the US Army organized under a Table of Organization and Equipment are authorized a coat of arms to be displayed on the organization's standard, called the "colors." This coat of arms also forms the basis for the unit's distinctive unit insignia(DUI), the emblem worn by all members of the unit on their service uniforms.[1]

The coats of arms for artillery units normally incorporate the color red, which has been the traditional color of the Artillery Branch in the US Army since the formation of the Corps of Artillery in 1777.[2] Below are galleries of the coats of arms of US Army Air Defense Artillery units. The official mottoes (as awarded by The Institute of Heraldry of the U.S. Army) and/or Special Designations (as awarded by the United States Army Center of Military History) of the units are also noted. These coats of arms are the ones brought forward from the Coast Artillery in 1968 under the creation of the Air Defense branch.
