U.S. Army Officer Hat Insignia
The U.S. Army officer hat insignia is based on the coat of arms from the Great Seal of the United States. It displays an American bald eagle with its wings rising upward holding thirteen arrows in its left talons and an olive branch in its right. Above the eagle, one can notice a constellation of thirteen stars surrounded by a cloud wreath. A shield with a combined thirteen stripes covers the eagle’s breast, and the motto “E Pluribus Unum” (out of many, one) is written on a scroll clenched in the eagle’s beak. This insignia came in metal and embroidered forms.
