194 Engineer Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
An oblong shield arched at top and bottom 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall bearing on the upper half a white saltire throughout with ultramarine blue within the three upper open areas each charged with a white five-pointed star, and from the lower edge of the saltire to base a scarlet area bearing a white masoned castle turret, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border.

Symbolism
Scarlet and white are the colors for the Corps of Engineers and a castle turret alludes to the branch insignia. Scarlet, white, blue and three stars refer to the state flag of Tennessee. Three stars are also on the Tennessee Army National Guard crest, and are used to denote the unit's allocation. The saltire and turret symbolize the overall mission of the organization.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 30 January 1974. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-571)
