Description
On a blue disc with a 1/8 (.32cm) green border 2 1/4 inches (5.72cm) in diameter overall, a white Santa Fe Cross.

Symbolism
The Santa Fe Cross was a symbol used to mark the old Santa Fe trail, an area where the unit trained, and was officially designated as an identifying device for the unit by Headquarters, 35th Division, General Orders Number 25, dated March 27, 1918. The organization is referred to as the Santa Fe Division.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 35th Division on 29 Oct 1918 by telegram and officially announced on 8 Jun 1922. It was redesignated on 17 Oct 1963 for the 35th Command Headquarters (Divisional). On 23 Jul 1968 the insignia was assigned to the 35th Engineer Brigade. The shoulder sleeve insignia was restored to the 35th Infantry Division and amended to change the description and add a symbolism on 27 Aug 1984. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-100)
