The guardians of our National symbolic heritage."

TIOH is responsible for executing the statuary (10 USC 4594) requirement for the Secretary of the Army to furnish heraldic services to the Office of the President of the United States and all Federal Government Agencies. Our work encompasses all elements of National symbolism associated with research, design, development, standardization, quality control, and other services which are fundamental to the creation and custody of official heraldic items. Products include coats of arms, decorations, medals, flags, streamers, agency seals, badges, and other types of official insignia. TIOH also provides the general public with limited research and information services.
