Origin/meaning

Shoulder Sleeve Insignia: Dark blue and scarlet are the colors traditionally associated with Personnel units; red, white and blue are our National colors. The saltire or crossbuck represents strength and support while simulating the Roman numeral "X", an allusion to the Command's designation. The sword, upraised to indicate military preparedness and readiness, highlights the important role of each soldier to the Command and to the total Army. Gold is emblematic of excellence and high achievement.
