Unit Coat of Arms Shield:
The field is red for the Field Artillery. The barrulets wavy symbolize the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean areas of service, with the North Star indicating Aleutian honors and the lindwurm (a German dragon) representing service in that theater.

Crest:
The design of the crest refers to the unit's service in Germany during the critical years between 1951 and 1957. The tower stands for strength and vigilance. In addition, the tower with three windows is the symbol of St. Barbara, patroness of Artillerymen. The cross is taken from the arms of the city of Bonn, Capital of the Federal Republic of Germany which the organization stood ready to defend. The black clouds refer to the threat of war which hung over Europe during the above years when the organization was one of the units manning our first line of defense in Western Europe.

Background:
The coat of arms was originally approved for the 30th Field Artillery Battalion on 24 August 1951. It was redesignated for the 30th Artillery Regiment on 12 November 1958. It was amended to add a crest on 4 November 1964. The insignia was redesignated for the 30th Field Artillery Regiment effective 1 September 1971.
