The purple background, often used for joint operations or units, represents the three environments of the Canadian Armed Forces supported by the Canadian Materiel Support Group (CMSG). The dragon, a great protector of its territory, alludes to the fact that the members of CMSG are custodians of supply and munitions depots.
