On a buff circular shaped embroidered item 3 inches (7.62 cm) in diameter, a green palm wreath with the yellow hand guards and pommels of two diagonally crossed scimitars surmounting the base of the palm wreath with white blades, points up, between the blades three yellow five pointed stars, all encircled by a dark blue 1/8 inch (.32 cm) border.  


The palm wreath is a symbol of honor; the scimitars indicate the dual nature of the coalition-the defeat of ISIL and the restoration of stability to the area.  The two stars indicate the command and are colored gold for excellence.  Buff and flag blue denote the land, sea and air components of the military.
