14 Military Police Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a vertical rectangle arched at the top and bottom with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) green border, 2 1/4 inches (5.72 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, a field divided per saltire green and yellow and thereon a red battle-ax and sword in saltire surmounted by a white four pointed star.

Symbolism
The compass points stand for the four corners of the battlefield and the four following combat missions of the Military Police Corps: battlefield circulation and control, law and order, rear battle operations, and enemy prisoners of war. The battle-ax and/or fasces and the sword symbolize the magistrate’s authority and the unit’s combat mission. The number 14 (numerical designation of the Brigade) is represented by the crossed background and weapons recalling the Roman numeral “X” for 10 with the 4 points on the compass star adding up to 14. Green and yellow are the branch colors of the Military Police and red is for courage and action.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 29 January 1985. It was amended to change the color of the border on 12 April 1985. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-701)
