Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
On a yellow embroidered hexagon edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) blue border, a pyramid of red flames issuing from base, surmounted by a sword throughout and point up, with yellow pommel, hilt, and handguard, the blade white between four red droplets, two and two. Overall dimensions are 2 1/8 inches (5.40 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in length.

Symbolism
Cobalt blue and yellow are the colors traditionally associated with Chemical units. The benzene ring is adapted from the branch insignia. The flames suggest the mission of the Brigade. The sword represents military readiness. The red droplets imply the method of distributing chemicals. The four droplets and the eight flame licks allude to the unit’s numerical designation.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 16 September 2007. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-913)
