Brick red and golden yellow are the colors used for the Transportation Corps. The organization's World War II campaign awards for service in the India-Burma and Central Burma areas are commemorated by the snow capped mountain for the hauling of supplies over many treacherous mountain roads near the Tibetan border. The palm tree and anchor indicate the many inland waterways traversed in Burmese transportation. In addition, the palm tree and anchor together with the black ring, symbolic of the wheel of motor transportation, denote the battalions port activities in the Republic of Vietnam. The color green also alludes to Vietnam service. Inscribed over the insignia is the battalion's motto, "We'll Carry You".
