34 Infantry Division Patch. US Army

To change information
On a black olla with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) black border, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 2 1/4 inches (5.72 cm) in height, a red bull skull.

The patch shape simulates an olla (Mexican water flask) symbolizing the 34th Division’s origin, formation and intensive training site at Camp Cody, New Mexico in Oct 1917. The bull skull also symbolizes the surrounding dry, desert-like area. Black denotes durability, firmness and stability and red is for courage and action.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 34th Division on 28 June 1922. It was redesignated for the 34th Command Headquarters (Divisional), Iowa National Guard on 16 October 1963. The insignia was redesignated for the 34th Infantry Division effective 10 February 1991, and amended to add a border and provide a symbolism for the design. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-99)
