72 Field Artillery Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
Centered on a red rectangular device arched at the top and bottom and edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border, the overall dimensions 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height, a black disc within a yellow ring surmounted above and below by two yellow pheons with white shafts, the topmost pointed to upper right, the lower one pointed to lower left.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the colors associated with Field Artillery. The cannon ball or black disc centered on the yellow one connotes accuracy of fire. The pheons (arrowheads) are symbolic of fire power and their configuration with the yellow disc forms an allusion to the unit’s numerical designation, 72.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 16 September 1980. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-657)
