On May 12, 1921 a distinctive insignia was approved for Army Warrant Officers.

Eagle Rising

Eagle Rising Insignia

It consisted of an eagle rising with wings displayed,

adapted from the great seal of the United States. 

The eagle is standing on two arrows,

which symbolize the military arts and sciences. 

The eagle rising is enclosed within a wreath. 

Warrant Officers of the Army Tank Corps were the first to wear this new insignia.

On July 9, 2004, Army Warrant Officers were integrated into the Army Officer Branches. The Eagle Rising Insignia was replaced by the Officer Branch Insignia which corresponds to the branch of the Warrant Officer’s primary military occupational specialty.
