197 Fires Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a red rectangle 3 inches (7.62cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08cm) in width overall arched at top and bottom, a bundle of five yellow arrows, points up, tied with a yellow ribbon all within a 1/8 inch (.32cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Red and yellow are the colors traditionally used for Field Artillery. The tied bundle of five arrows adopted from the New Hampshire State crest refers to the unit's home location and symbolizes the mission as well. A bundle of arrows was one of the first missiles used in an artillery mission.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 197th Field Artillery Brigade on 23 January 1979. It was redesignated effective 1 September 2008, for the 197th Fires Brigade with the description updated. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-633)
