On a blue shield 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall, a yellow arrow point up, surmounted by a white Arabic figure "8."

Symbolism
The nickname of the division, "Pathfinder," is represented by the arrow while the figure "8" identifies the division's designation.
