The 371st Sustainment Brigade Distinctive Unit Insignia, or unit crest, was originally approved on 21 November 1971 for the 371st Support Group and pays tribute to the unit’s Ohio heritage. The Brigade was originally organized in the National Guard on 21 September 1917, but it was manned by troops from the Ohio National Guard. Following World War I, it was reorganized and expanded, receiving Federal recognition in the Ohio National Guard as elements of the 37th Division (later 37th Infantry Division), a unit it would serve under as the 37th Division in World War II. After World War II, it was again reorganized and Federally recognized in the Ohio National Guard.

These ties to Ohio and the Ohio National Guard are reflected in the design of the Brigade’s unit crest. In the center of the insignia are seventeen arrows; this is taken from the Great Seal of the State of Ohio, where it reflects Ohio’s status as the seventeenth state to be admitted into the Union. Green leaves and a buckeye are emblems of the state tree of Ohio, and the red and white twists of the wreath of the bottom denote the English settlers who created the first non-Native American settlement in the state.
