The Finance Corps traces its origins back to the Revolutionary War and the appointment of a Paymaster General of the Army in June, 1776, which eventually led to the establishment of a Pay Department. Incorporated into the Quartermaster Corps for a brief period, the Pay Department was reborn first as the Finance Service (1918) and then the Finance Department (1920), a separate branch of the War Department. It did not achieve basic Army branch status until 1950, and it wasn’t until 1987 that a Finance Corps Regiment was established in the U.S Army Regimental System.

A gold diamond, longtime symbol of the Pay Department and then branch insignia for the Finance Corps, forms the basis of the Finance Corps Regimental Distinctive Insignia, or unit crest. A crossed quill pen and sword reflect the Corps role as a Combat Service Support organization, and a globe with in the background is symbolic of the scope of the Corps’ worldwide reach. "To Support And Serve," the Regimental motto, is inscribed on a scroll beneath the shield.

This insignia was approved on 1 June 1988, less than a year after the Finance Corps Regiment was activated on 7 May 1987.
