Connecticut State Area Command Patch. US Army National Guard

To change information
Description
On a yellow equilateral triangle one point up, each side of which measures three inches (7.62 cm), the crest of the Connecticut National Guard: On a wreath of six twists alternating white and red, a grape vine supported and fructed proper.

Symbolism
The grapevine appears as the device of Connecticut as early as 1759. As the predominant population within the state was of English origin, the twists of the wreath are white and red.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, Connecticut National Guard on 30 November 1949. It was redesignated with the description amended for the Headquarters, State Area Command, Connecticut Army National Guard on 30 December 1983. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-475)
