85 Civil Affairs Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

On a purple hexagon 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 1/4 inches (5.72 cm) in width overall with vertical sides of 1 5/8 inches (4.13 cm), an unsheathed sword on the left and a sheathed sword on the right in saltire with pommels up, both white and garnished by purple, all surmounted vertically throughout by a gold quill with pen to base, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border.

Purple and white are the colors used for Civil Affairs and gold symbolizes achievement. The swords, symbol of leadership and protection, are sheathed and unsheathed to symbolize the politico-military authority of the organization. A quill is a symbol of knowledge and alludes to the issuing and dissemination of all directives. The three charges on the six-sided hexagon with the two swords allude to the unit’s present numerical designation.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 362d Civil Affairs Brigade on 31 august 1976. It was redesignated effective 16 September 2011, for the 85th Civil Affairs Brigade with the description updated. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-595)
