A Gold color metal and enamel device consisting of a shield blazoned:  Per fess abased Gules and Argent, a fess abased wavy to base tierced Or, paley of nine of the first and the third, and Azure.  Attached below and to the sides of the shield a Gold scroll inscribed “ESTRUCTURA Y DEFENDER” in Blue letters.


Symbolism

Red and white are the colors of the Corps of Engineers.  The fess is symbolic of strength and support.  The red and yellow pales, suggestive of the arms of Aragon, symbolize the Spanish settlement of California.  The four yellow pales represent the counties of Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego, the home area of the organization.  The coastal location is indicated by the wavy blue section, which signifies the Pacific; the white area alludes to the beaches.  The yellow design, taken as a whole, represents the engineering function of construction of bridges, buildings, docks, field fortification, gun emplacements, etc.  The motto translates to “Build and Defend.”


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 5 November 1953.  It was rescinded on 30 December 1974.
