Kentucky Army National Guard Element, Joint Force Headquarters Patch

To change information
Description
On a shield 3 1/4 inches (8.26 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall triparted blue, white and red with a yellow chief, a white long rifle barrel up outlined in blue diagonally from upper left to lower right, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) blue border.

Symbolism
Red, white and blue are our national colors. The yellow, red and blue allude to the combat arms: Armor (Cavalry), Artillery and Infantry. The long rifle is inseparably associated with the early history of Kentucky prior to and after its admission to the Union as the fifteenth State.

The insignia was redesignated with the description amended for the Headquarters, State Area Command, Kentucky Army National Guard on 30 December 1983. It was redesignated for the Kentucky Army National Guard Element, Joint Force Headquarters and amended to update the description effective 1 October 2003. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-566)
