Origin of the Eagle Rising
Original Distinctive Insignia of the Army Warrant Officer

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.

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.
