The Institute of Heraldry
The Institute of Heraldry (TIOH) provides heraldic services to the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Defense, and all other Federal agencies. They provide research, design, development, standardization, quality control, and other services which are fundamental to the creation and custody of our National Heraldry. Such items include coats of arms, decorations, medals, flags, streamers, agency seals, badges, and other types of insignia. TIOH is also responsible for administering the Army and Air Force Heraldic Quality Control Program to ensure that only the highest quality military insignia are sold through Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and other commercial sources.
