169 Fires Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
A shield-shaped device 2 inches (5.08cm) in width and 2 3/4 inches (6.99cm) in height overall, consisting of three red mountain peaks with white caps bearing a yellow field piece in vertical center, all below a light blue sky area and all within a 1/8 inch (.32cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the traditional colors of Field Artillery and the field piece refers to the organization's mission. The light blue sky and mountain peaks, representing the Rocky Mountains, refer to the previous home station of the unit at Denver, Colorado. Yellow further alludes to the historic gold fields of the state, and the red mountains allude to the state name, Colorado, which is Spanish for "colored red."

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 169th Field Artillery Brigade on 3 January 1979. It was redesignated effective 1 September 2008, for the 169th Fires Brigade with the description and symbolism updated. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-631)
