From The Great War 1914-1918

An insignia (Latin: īnsignia, nominative plural of insignium, meaning "emblem, token, symbol") is a symbol or token of personal power, status or office, or of an official body of government or jurisdiction. An insignia is usually the emblem of a specific or general authority. There are many different examples of insignia, for example: badges, cockades, coats of arms and heraldry, regalia, seals, ensigns and flags of a country or state/province. However, in military terms, insignia refers to primarily to rank and unit markings.[1]
