11 Signal Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
Centered on a white oblong shield with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border, arched at top and bottom, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, a white globe with orange gridlines surmounted by a black thunderbird with yellow lightning bolts extending over the globe from its orange eye.

Symbolism
Orange and white are colors used for the Signal Corps. The globe signifies the worldwide scope of the unit’s mission. The thunderbird, an American Indian symbol of great power that controls the skies and sees all that occurs on the ground, refers to the unit’s Southwestern heritage. The lightning, issuing from the thunderbird’s eye as in Indian legend, denotes the speed and abilities of electronic communications. The black thunderbird and white background symbolize the night and day capability of the unit.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 21 April 1980. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-652)
