To make sure you’re fully informed before you make the decision to buy this patch from us, we’ve gathered a good number of likely questions you might want to ask as well as the answers.

How is the Navy Emblem made?

We make our Navy Emblems using a computerized embroidery machine. A logo or text can be embroidered with embroidery thread on any piece of cloth by an embroidery machine. In this procedure, the emblem is first designed on a computer program which creates a digital embroidery file. The file is sent to the embroidery machine using a USB or data cable; then the machine reads the file and makes the emblem on the fabric.

What type of embroidery machine do you use to make these emblems?

There are many brands of embroidery machines in the market. However, we use the Barudan embroidery machines. This is a Japanese brand known for its high quality embroidery and also stands as the most popular in the market. Many of our competitors use Chinese brands that provide low quality embroidery but we make use of this to make sure we give our customers the best. Visit this page to learn more about Barudan embroidery machine.

What type of thread and fabric do you use in making your Navy Emblem?

There are many types of threads in the market but Madeira embroidery thread is the most popular, the finest, and the most expensive thread on this earth. However, for the sake of cost and affordability of the patches by our clients, we only make use of it upon request especially, for fire resistant embroidered patches (Please visit this page for more details on fire resistant embroidered patches).  So, we use Chinese thread which is also a good thread in making the Navy Emblem as well as other embroidered patches. However, if you want us to use Madeira embroidery thread, you can place a request for that. Click here to see more about Madeira.

In making our embroidered navy emblem, we use polyester twill fabric. We also use Felt, Nylon, Real Leather, Fake Leather, Canvas, and other types of woven fabrics upon a request.

I would want the edges of my Navy Emblem to be sharp. Is there anything you can do about this when I order?

Yes we have a solution for that. Instead of the standard rounded edges, we use the Hot-Cut Edge also called Satin-Stitch Edge to make the Navy Emblem. With this type of edge, the emblems will have sharp, detailed edges with fine levels of detail and intricate designs. This is also recommended for unusual shapes; kiss-cut or custom-cut shapes. Please note that we offer satin-stitch border at no additional cost.

What backing options do you use for the embroidered Navy Emblem?

There are four common ways to attach embroidered patches on clothing; the Velcro Backing, Iron-On Backing or Heat Seal Backing, Sew on Backing, Peel and Stick Backing. Most times, we use the Sew on method for Navy Emblem however, just like other military patches, our Navy Emblem can be attached using any backing option. Visit this page to learn more about these backing options.

What would it cost me to buy your Navy Emblem?

It doesn’t cost much to get your Navy Emblem from us as we calculate our prices based on the number of stitches which makes it more affordable for you. We do not have minimum orders as you can order any amount of patches and we will have it made for you at an affordable rate.

Can I order custom patches no minimum?

Yes you can! Since we do not have minimum orders, even of you need to order just one air force patch for your personal use, we are at your service.  We are able to do this because we have our own embroidery machines which enables us offer you the flexibility of ordering for any amount of patches.

Navy Uniforms

There are various Navy Emblems and it is worthy to note that all these Navy Emblems are strictly to be applied on navy uniforms and nowhere else. There are various uniforms for the United States Navy and they include dress uniforms, daily service uniforms, working uniforms, and uniforms for special situations, which have varied throughout the history of the navy. The Dress uniforms have three categories which involves the service, full and dinner dress.


The service dress uniforms are seasonal; the Blue version (SDB) worn in winter all year round while the white version is worn during summer. Service Dress uniforms are meant for official functions especially for travelling or when reporting to command. The Service Dress Blue consists of a Dark navy blue suit coat and trousers nearly black in color, a white shirt and a four in hand black necktie for men and neck tab for women. The men’s jacket is double breasted with six gold colored buttons while the female versions are single breasted with a single row of four gold colored buttons. The service dress white for both the men and women has a standing collar white tunic with shoulder boards for officers or metal anchor for CPOs. It goes with white trousers, white shoes and a white combination headgear.


The Full Dress is worn for official ceremonies like change of command, retirements, commissioning, weddings, funeral, etc. This dress is similar to the Service Dress except for the replacement of the ribbons with full-size medals above the left breast pocket while the ribbons are worn on the right side for decorations without corresponding medals. Officers and CPOs are also allowed to carry swords with the uniforms.


The Dinner Dress uniforms are the most formal uniform with many variations of it. Officers are allowed to blue and white versions of it. Women in the navy frequently wear the appropriate skirt color for these uniforms; however, trouser is also approved for them. The dinner dresses are identical to their service dress versions but worn with miniature medals ad badges without ribbons.


There is also a khaki uniform reserved for commissioned officers, chief warrant officers and Chief Petty Officers in certain grades. There is also the Working uniforms featuring Navy working Uniforms of different types worn at sea and at industrial environments ashore and also the shipboard working uniform which is a flame resistant coverall used aboard all ships.

The buyers and end users of our Navy Emblems

Since these emblems are strictly designed for navy uniforms, they are not up for the public. However, they are purchased by Government approved uniform suppliers who use them on the uniforms they supply to the navy.  They are also bought by navy units or groups who want a top notch common unit emblem for their unit. Individual Navy officers also patronize us especially when they need their emblems customized or refined with a fine cut patch as their shoulder sleeve insignia and other Navy Emblems.

History of Navy Emblems

The first military Emblems were created when soldiers started moving into combat in groups rather than units. The 81st infantry Division code named Wildcat in US army is known or agreed to have been the first army unit authorized to wear an emblem as a unit patch. This was during the First World War when they sailed to France after having their training at Fort Jackson South Carolina. They wore an olive drab felt emblem on their left shoulders showing the silhouette of a wildcat representing the Wildcat Creek – a stream flowing through Fort Jackson.


However, the history of Navy emblems cannot be discussed without talking about the history of the Navy itself. The emblem traces its origin to the designs and ornament of British Royal Marines with its present form created in 1868. In 1776, devices of the British marines consisted of a foul anchor of silver or pewter which still forms a part of the emblem today. After several changes between 1798 and 1824, a brass eagle measuring 3.5 inches from one wing tip to the other was recommended in 1834 to be worn on the hat. After several distinguishing marks were prescribed, in 1859, the origin of the present color scheme for the uniform ornaments was born with the design involving a U.S. Shield, a bugle, the letter “M” and half wreath.

U.S. Special Warfare Navy Emblem: Why it is rare and highly coveted

The Special Warfare breast Insignia is one of the most coveted Navy Emblem. Popularly known as the “SEAL Trident”, this insignia recognizes the members of the United States Navy who have successfully completed one of the most physically challenging and mentally demanding training programs in the U.S. Armed Forces.


This special insignia was established on October 16th, 1970 and was issued in two grades; Golden version for the officers and Silver for the enlisted. After 8 years, the issuance of the silver SEAL Navy emblem issued to the enlisted was stopped. This insignia is unusual since it is one of the very few breast insignia issued identically for both officers and enlisted personnel. However, this was because of the combined training both officers and enlisted receive when involved in BUD/S training. The Special Warfare Navy Emblem is designed with a golden eagle clutching a United States Navy anchor, flintlock style pistol and trident with the design likely derived from the British Combined Operations badge – a defunct department of the British War Office setup to harass and raid the Germans in the continent during the Second World War using combined Naval and army forces.

Why it is Highly Coveted

The Special Warfare Insignia commands high respect in the military since it cannot be earned by the faint and weary. Despite the rigorous trainings received by military personnel, not all can survive the requirements and training that makes a U.S. Navy SEAL member. Only the “syllabus” outlining the special training that these operators go through referred to as SEALS is enough to make the average go weary. The SEAL is an abbreviation for Sea, Air, and Land which means that these operators are trained to be battle ready in each of those areas.

To qualify for this training, you are expected to complete a two-month Naval Special Warfare Preparatory School held at Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois. This program is designed to eliminate those who do not possess the physical makeup to survive the superhuman tasks that lie ahead. During the test, each candidate is expected to pull through a series of selected activities like 1000-meter swim in 20 minutes, 70 push-ups in 2 minutes, four-mile run in 31 minutes, etc.


The next training after you pull through the two-month training is the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training (BUD/S). It starts with a 3-week introductory course after which more than 20 weeks is spent training in Land Warfare, Combat Diving and Physical conditioning. After this, you’ll finally undergo the SEAL Qualification course which includes courses in SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) and parachuting at Basic Airborne School in Fort Benning, Georgia.


With all these, it’s easy to understand why this Navy emblem has its Insignia in Gold and also why it’s highly coveted.
