About Eunomia


Eunomia was the Greek goddess of law, governance, and good order. Ancient Greeks believed she upheld civil order and maintained the internal stability of polities and city-states from the malign efforts of Dysnomia the goddess of chaos and lawlessness.  Eunomia personifies the charge of Civil Affairs elements who bring order, balance, and stability to the inherently chaotic environment of war and its aftermath.  Eunomia’s endeavor to facilitate peace, justice, and lawful governance represents the efforts of Civil Affairs elements across the entire spectrum of operations and throughout the competition continuum.    

Within the logo, Eunomia grasps a scroll in one hand, while wielding a sword at the ready in the other.  This juxtaposition represents the bifurcated nature of the warrior-diplomats of the Civil Affairs regiment, who coexist between the realms of conflict and cooperation and regularly strive to expand their understanding of both.  The color purple mirrors the regimental insignia, which in turn draws its lineage from the long-standing association of purple with political power.  Finally, the olive branches highlight the role of Civil Affairs in “securing the victory” of durable peace after war’s conclusion.
