The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, or unit patch, was originally approved for the U.S. Army Engineers Divisions and Districts on 31 October 1977. It was redesignated for the Corps of Engineers on 11 July 1979.

Scarlet and white (silver), official branch colors of the Corps of Engineers, are the only colors used for the Service/Dress Uniform version of the insignia. A gridlined globe alludes to the Corps’ activities both in the United States and overseas, while the opened pair of dividers symbolize design and planning. Both of these images are surmounted on a turreted tower, similar to the ones used for the Corps of Engineers insignia of branch, that denotes the organization’s construction mission.

The globe refers to the activities of the US Army Corps of Engineers both in the Continental United States and overseas.  The dividers are symbolic of design and planning and the tower signifies the construction mission.  Scarlet and white are the colors traditionally associated with the Corps of Engineers.
