7 Signal Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
A shield arced at top and base 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall divided chevronwise blue (ultramarine) and white, a seven stepped orange area (one step in center and three on either side) issuing from base onto the white area, in chief two orange diagonal electric flashes with both ends pointed emitting from the top step of the orange stepped area, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border.

Symbolism
Orange and white are the colors used for the Signal Corps. The blue area alludes to the troposphere, the lower portion of the atmosphere which extends, more or less, seven miles above the surface of the earth, the stratosphere forming the atmosphere’s upper portion. The seven steps of the orange area refer to antenna, wave length, frequency, modulation, selectivity, volume and control and also allude to the numerical designation (7) of the Brigade. The two electric flashes or impulses symbolize the transmitting and the receiving of radio and radar signals and communication, the white pointed area simulating the “bending” or breaking of electric waves (beams) in the troposphere and the scattering of a portion of them back to earth.
