Distinctive Unit Crest
The crest of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command is the official symbol of its status as a military unit. It appears on IMCOM colors and the uniforms of its Soldiers.
A gold color metal and enamel seven-sided device 1 3/16 inches (3.02 cm) in width consisting of a diagonally crossed gold chain links, left and right, attached in the middle by a gold ring, all fimbriated green, surmounted by a pair of gold crossed swords. Attached below is a black tripartite scroll doubled of the same and inscribed "SUSTAIN, SUPPORT, DEFEND" in gold.
Scarlet is the color traditionally used by Support units, with which the Installation Management Command (IMCOM) is associated. The heptagon suggests the original seven geographic regions overseen and serviced by the organization. The chain links signify durability, while the ring denotes continuous service. The combination of the chain links and ring symbolize the Installation Management Command's continuous worldwide support to all the soldiers, civilians, their families and units. The swords refer to teamwork and the focus on preparing and training soldiers for combat - to defend and protect. Yellow reflects the high honor and values of IMCOM. Green, associated with the agency's parent organization - Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management - represents the IMCOM's stewardship of installations. Black reflects the Command?s determination to execute their missions to support the garrisons throughout the regions.
