The sleeve insignia for Flotilla Staff Officers (FSO) that designates their organizational position in the Coast Guard Auxiliary is a single stripe of silver lace, 1/2-inch in width and placed 2 inches above the cuff on the sleeves of the Dinner Dress Blue Jacket and Service Dress Blue Coat. Laces are to completely circle the sleeve and terminate in the back at the seam.

Mounted 1/4-inch above this single half-inch lace is the Auxiliary Shield device containing a red “A” indicating the position is filled by appointment (as opposed to voting). This device is embroidered on fabric that matches the jacket/coat on which it will be sewn. Flotilla Staff Officers purchasing this synthetic silver lace might also consider adding the red “A” Auxiliary device on blue backing (for the Service Dress Coat) or black material (for the Dinner Dress Blue Jacket).
