The black circle surrounding the green field represents a tank roadwheel. There are thirteen stars on the green field, 4 stars for Patton, 4 stars for Bradley, 5 stars for Eisenhower. The thirteen stars also represent the 13 stars of Armor: Patton, Oliver, White, Chaffee, Abrams, Pool, Rose, Harmon, Dager, Thurman, Funk, Starry, and McMaster. The rejected armor tri colors represents the Armor Corps early days after WWI we were fighting for acceptance. The design was created by Patton, but rejected by Army Heraldry as they want the representation of combined arms to be equal. The red (artillery) the gold (armor) and the blue (infantry. The green and yellow are the colors of Armor given by Patton, the Cavalry Sabers represent our lineage to the horse cavalry and the Mk IV male is the earliest American tanks.
