Coats of arms of U.S. infantry regiments are heraldic emblems associated with infantry regiments in the US Army. Under Army Regulation 840-10, each regiment and separate table of organization and equipment (TOE) battalion of the U.S. Army is authorized a coat of arms to be displayed on the organization's flag, called the "colors." This coat of arms usually forms the basis for the unit's [1 ] distinctive unit insignia (DUI), the emblem worn by all members of the unit on their service uniforms.
The coats of arms for infantry units normally incorporate the color blue, which has been the traditional color of the
infantry in the U.S. Army since 1851. Below are galleries of the coats of arms of US Army infantry regiments. The official mottoes (as awarded by [2 ] The Institute of Heraldry of the U.S. Army) and/or special designations (as awarded by the United States Army Center of Military History) of the units are also noted.
Active duty units that have served in war are authorized a crest. National Guard units are authorized the crest for their respective state, while Army Reserve units are all authorized a crest depicting a minuteman.
