Symbolism
Green alludes to the Army Forces Cyber Command, as a land based organization. The inner border suggests the containment of threats against the cyberspace infrastructure. The black background represents space, the unit’s area of operations. The flowing pattern in the background denotes the shifting electronic energy of the Cyberspace environment. The terrestrial globe signifies the global electronic reach of the Command; it is divided from light to dark, to display the Army Forces Cyber Command’s round the clock operational velocity and the interaction of its cyber responsibilities. The three spears symbolize the three areas of computer network capabilities - attack, defend and exploit. The lightning bolt illustrates the ability and swiftness to strike anywhere.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective ` October 2010. It was amended to correct the unit designation on 22 October 2010. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1036)
