631 Field Artillery Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a red hexagon 3 inches (7.62cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08cm) in width overall, a black trident surmounted by a yellow dragon's head heraldically erased all within a 1/8 inch (.32cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Scarlet (red) and yellow are the colors associated with Artillery. The trident, an attribute of Neptune, the Roman God of Waters, alludes to the Indian word "Mississippi," which means "Father of the Waters." The dragon's head, symbolic of a fire-breathing beast, is emblematic of Artillery. The six sides of the insignia, three prongs of the trident, and the single dragon's head refer to the unit's numerical designation.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was authorized on 11 October 1979.
