Description
On a rectangular shaped white shield with a point at base 3 1/4 inches (8.26 cm) in height and 2 3/8 inches (6.03 cm) in width overall, a saltire couped horizontally in base Gules within a bordure diminished Azure (Old Glory Blue); all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) Silver Gray border.

Symbolism
The shape of the shoulder sleeve insignia matches the symbol to depict the Maneuver Enhancement Brigade in military symbology. It underscores the Maneuver Enhancement Brigade’s contribution to mobility and maneuverability that is integral to the unit’s mission. The scarlet saltire or St. Andrew’s cross is a reference to the State Flag of Alabama, home of the Brigade. The gray and blue are colors adopted from the Alabama Army National Guard patch and highlight the proud heritage of the organization.

Background
