111 Maneuver Enhancement Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
On a yellow shield, 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, arched at the top and bottom, in base a yellow demi-sun, bordered scarlet, with seven scarlet rays two horizontal rays on each side and three vertical rays all the same length, with tops barbed all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) scarlet border.

The modified ancient Indian sun symbol of Zia was suggested by the State Flag of New Mexico. The barbed sun rays allude to the Brigade’s former mission to provide air defense for forward combat elements. The horizontal bars also symbolize defense and control, while the vertical bars allude to 111 further distinguishing the numerical designation of the Brigade. The colors red and yellow, the national colors of Spain, refer to the historical Spanish influence in New Mexico. Scarlet and yellow are the colors used for the Artillery, the previous designation of the unit.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 111th Air Defense Artillery Brigade on 20 July 1973. It was redesignated effective 1 February 2008, for the 111th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade with the description and symbolism updated. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-564)
