|1. Can I use my UIC if I don't have a DODAAC?
No – you must use a valid DODAAC since the
DODAAC is used to ship your items. The UIC
is not associated with any unit address.
|2. Can I submit a requisition once our unit or commander approves the drawing?
No – The drawing must be finalized and published by The Institute of Heraldry before a requisition can be placed. When the drawings are approved, they are NOT official until TIOH has updated and published them. TIOH will notify you when the flag or guidon can be ordered. Please check with the POC at TIOH who was developing your drawing to determine if it has been completed before you submit your order on this website.
|3. How do I get a user account/login for this system for submitting a heraldic order?
A user account is not needed to utilize many
capabilities of this site. If you are interested
in requesting heraldic items, click the link
labeled "Create Heraldry Request
(DD1348-6)" on the
www.heraldry.army.mil home page or click
here.User accounts are only distributed to and needed by individuals within specific groups involved with the processing and fulfillment of submitted heraldry requests.
|4. Do I need to submit a requisition for each streamer listed on the Lineage & Honors Certificate/Statement of Service?
No - Submit one (1) requisition for all
authorized streamers. Also, submit as an
attachment a copy of the unit's Lineage &
Honors Certificate/Statement of Service. These
are the only official documentation that C&H
will accept for issuance of unit streamers. If
you do not have a current Certificate or
Statement of Service, contact the Center of
Military History (
|5. Why the long leadtime for a battalion flag?
Battalion Flags are unique and were hand embroidered, which previously took up to two years to complete. Currently, all the drawings/coat of arms for the battalion flags are being digitized so they can be machine embroidered. Once the digitization process is complete, the six month leadtime for battalion flags will improve significantly. The six month leadtime is an improvement from the two years a unit had to wait for a battalion flag.
