A silver metal color insignia consisting of a black spade bearing a silver edelweiss with yellow center, the spade between two silver stars, the device mounted on a red scroll inscribed "DEMONSTRAMUS" in silver letters.
The two stars allude to the arms of the town of Bischwiller in France (Alsace Ardennes). Considered a "hot spot," the unit suffered its first casualties there. The edelweiss refers to the Rhineland. The spade with edelweiss together with the two stars represent three battle honors awarded the unit for services in the European Theater, World War II. The motto translates to "We Demonstrate."
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 3 June 1965. It was amended to update the description and add a symbolism on 25 June 2013.
