The Institute of Heraldry, U.S. Army, is located at Fort Belvoir, a military installation physically located in the State of Virginia, within the metropolitan area of Washington, D.C.

Its purpose originally was to take responsibility for the coordination and approval of coats of arms and other insignia for Army organizations. By the end of World War II, its role expanded to include the other military services. In 1957 Public Law 85-263 directed the Secretary of the Army to furnish heraldic services to all branches of the federal government. The activities of the Institute encompass research, design, development, standardization, quality control, and other services relating to official symbolic items--seals, decorations, medals, insignia, badges, flags, and other items awarded to or authorized for official wear or display by government personnel and agencies. Limited research and information services concerning official symbolic items are also provided to the general public.
