      Kuna je kao simbol postrojbe izabrana prema povijesnom grbu Kraljevine Slavonije, koji je kralj Vladislav II. Jagelović dodijelio slavonskom plemstvu 8. prosinca 1496. godine, a simbol kune pojavljuje se još ranije na kovanicama banovaca iz XIII. stoljeća. Taj je simbol ubrzo postao i nadimak ove postrojbe, kojeg je zadržala i proslavila kasnija 3. gardijska brigada. Njihovu tradiciju pronosi današnja Tenkovska bojna Kune, Gardijske oklopno-mehanizirane brigade Hrvatske kopnene vojske.

      The 3rd Guards Brigade (3. gardijska brigada), also known by their nickname Kune (lit. "Martens"), was a Croatian Ground Forces (HV) brigade formed on 29 April 1991 in Vinkovci. The brigade participated in a number of engagements during the War for Independance (1991–1995) and primarily operated in the eastern Croatian region of Slavonija. Initially the brigade was referred to as the 3rd "A" Brigade of the Croatian National Guard. Its initial roster included four battalions, stationed in Osijek, Vinkovci, Slavonski Brod and Vukovar.

The tank battalion within the GOMBR continues to use the original 3rd Brigade's nickname and emblem.
