Heraldry The logo for the Assistant Commandant for Reserve includes blue and orange seahorses representing the domestic and expeditionary port security mission which has been the cornerstone of Coast Guard Reserve operations since 1941.

On the shield is a trident symbolizing Coast Guard Shore Forces, an oar symbolizing Coast Guard Boat Forces, and a Sword symbolizing Coast Guard Deployable Specialized Forces. Beneath the trident is a white structure spanning the shield representing the contributions of Mission Support in the sustainment of operations. The seven blue notches in the middle of the shield represent the seven Reserve Components outlined in United States Code including the Coast Guard Reserve Component. At the bottom of the shield is a globe and compass rose reflecting the reach of the Coast Guard Reserve. Inscribed on a ribbon between the seahorses is the following: "Pacem Seu Bella Paratum", or "In peace or war, always ready." Seal of the Coast Guard Reserve The Component seal of the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve, designed in 1991. Heraldry The crossed anchors supporting the shield are adapted from the United States Coast Guard's symbol, and the colors dark blue, scarlet, and white are traditional with the organization. Gold is emblematic of achievement and excellence. The sword symbolizes defense and the organization's military heritage. The motto Professionalism, Patriotism, Preparedness embodies the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve's total mission to protect our national security. The round shape of the motto scroll alludes to a life preserver and represents the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve's peacetime mission to help others. Issue 1 • 2019 � RESERVIST 31
