Symbolism

Scarlet and yellow are the traditional colors of Field Artillery organizations.  The diamond shape and blue background refer to Arkansas, the unit's home state, and the gold diagonal stripe on the scarlet background, from the coat of arms of the Marquis de la Fayette, alludes to Fayetteville, Arkansas, the headquarters location.  The projectile indicates the unit's mission and firepower potential.

Care Instructions

Attachment options: iron-on, sew-on, or safety pin.

Follow these steps when attaching patches by iron-on backing:

1. Choose the item on which you plan to attach the patch. As a general rule, the fabric you choose should be at least as heavy as the patch. Fabrics like denim and cotton provide the best base for iron-on patches.

2. Lay your item on a flat, heat-resistant surface.

3. Heat up the iron to the hottest setting your fabric can tolerate. Make sure the "steam" option is turned off.

4. Iron the place where you plan to place the patch.

5. Place a thin garment over the patch.

6. Position the heated iron over the patch and press down firmly for about 25 seconds on each side.- Remove the iron and allow the patch to cool.

7. Check to see whether the patch is fixed on securely by gently rubbing at the edge with a finger. If it lifts up a bit, repeat the process.

8. For a completely secure patch, use a sewing machine or a needle and thread to secure the patch to the fabric.

Full adhesiveness will be achieved in 48 hours.

Disclaimer: Don’t wash the item more than necessary since this
process may cause the patch to start coming off. If you do need to wash
the item, hand wash it using cold water. Allow it to air dry.
