Washington National Guard
Worn from:
21 September 1976 - Current.

The raven indicates that the elements of this brigade are derived
from Washington state. The family crest of George Washington,
a raven on a gold coronet, traditionally has been used to form the
crest of the Washington-state unit insignia. The raven design is a
combination of three Northwest Indian tribal designs of the raven;
the head portion from the Haida Indians; the lower portion from the
Kwakiutl Indians; and the beak, eyes, and mouth from the Nootka Indians.
The use of rectangles and squares is based on the extensive use of such
shapes in Indian designs and carvings.
