110th Aviation Brigade, A-1-871

Description/Blazon
On an ultramarine blue shield 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height by 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) golden orange border, a golden orange spearhead surmounting a white vol in chief and issuing from a four-blade white propeller shaded gray, in base.
Symbolism
The wings, along with the colors ultramarine blue and golden orange, represent Army Aviation. White denotes integrity and purpose. The propeller refers again to aviation; the spear-point symbolizes the attack mission and the airmobile assault of personnel to battle zones. Together, the spear-point and propeller simulate the numerals "one" and "ten," from the Roman numeral "X" for ten, a reference to the brigade's designation, as in the "one-tenth."
Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 1 March 2005.
