Description: A gold and silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/4 inches (3.18 cm) in height overall consisting of a gold spearhead surmounted by a silver polestar inset with four black crosswise daggers, the northern dagger slightly enlarged.

Symbolism: The gold spearhead represents Special Operations Command North’s combatant command relationship to U.S. Special Operations Command. The eight-pointed polestar denotes the North Star which historically has been used by service members to orientate themselves. The V-42 dagger was the fighting knife issued to the First Special Force, a joint American/Canadian commando unit during WWII. The four instances of the dagger represent both the four nations in U.S. Northern Command’s area of responsibility: United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Bahamas. The four daggers further denote the four services which make up special operations. The single larger dagger pointing north is further recognition to the Northern American geography associated with the Command.

Background: The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 25 April 2014.
