Description/Blazon

A silver color metal and enamel device consisting of a light blue disk surmounted by and extending over a white quadrate, each side indented inwardly nebuly of one, bearing a scarlet saltire, the ends couped by lines at right angles, and charged at the center by a yellow six-pointed star two points up, all below a silver pair of wings conjoined and partially extending over and beyond the upper ends of the saltire and the upper angles of the quadrate, the conjoined wing ulnas coinciding with the indented nebuly of the upper side of the quadrate and passing under the upper two points of the star, in base a silver convex motto scroll inscribed "WHERE EAGLES DARE" in red letters, passing over the lower angles of the quadrate and terminating upward at the disk.


Symbolism

The silver wings are symbolic of the unit's mission.  The blue disk and white nebuly areas allude to the sky and clouds, and the red saltire on white, suggested by the state flag of Alabama, and the star refer to Montgomery, Alabama, the unit's headquarters.


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 31st Aviation Battalion on 31 March 1971.  It was redesignated for the 131st Aviation Regiment effective 1 October 1987.
