Trademarking US Military Insignias

15 USC 1052 provides :
“No trademark by which the goods of the applicant may be distinguished from the goods of others shall be refused registration on the principal register on account of its nature unless it—
(b) Consists of or comprises the flag or coat of arms or other insignia of the United States, or of any State or municipality, or of any foreign nation, or any simulation thereof.”
This explains why no registrations are found for military insignia of the United States. Whether you think such insignia serve to identify source or affiliation or sponsorship by a military unit of the United States and thus are trademarks, or think they do not serve such a function, they are by law not registrable.
