11 Aviation Command patch. US Army

To change information
On a blue shield with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) blue border 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall, a silver gray eagle detailed black with wings displayed and bearing on each wing a golden orange arrow.

Ultramarine blue and golden orange are traditional Army Aviation colors. The shoulder sleeve insignia shape is taken from the first patch worn by the unit’s predecessor, the 11th Air Assault Division (Test). The shield is further indicative of the protection afforded by the assigned Apache battalions. The eagle, symbolic of Army aviation, represents the superior flying ability of the Command. It is silver to emphasize high ideals and meritorious accomplishments of Army aviation units. The arrows on the eagle’s wings allude to the numerical designation of the Command. Also, they represent speed in flight and weapons capability of the organization.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 11th Aviation Brigade on 25 August 1987. It was redesignated effective 16 September 2006, for the 11th Aviation Command with the description and symbolism updated. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-739)
