New Delhi: Indian Navy on Friday unveiled new designs of the Admiral’s Epaulettes. The design is inspired by the Rajmudra of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

The design was developed after PM Modi announced incorporating the emblem on the naval officer’s epaulettes on Navy Day 2023, Decmeber 4 at Maharashtra’s Sindhudurg.

The new designs of the Admiral’s Epaulettes include the golden Navy button, Octagon, Sword and the telescope.

Golden Navy Button – This symbol reiterates the Navy’s resolve to do away with the idea of slavery.

Octagon – The Octagon encasing the Indian national emblem represents the eight cardinal directions, indicating all-round long-term vision.

Sword – This emphasises the cutting edge of the national power. It is also a symbol of winning wars through dominance, defeating adversaries and overcoming every challenge.

Telescope – The telescope symbolises a long-term vision, foresight and weather-eye in an ever-changing world.

The Navy said that the adoption of the new design reaffirms their commitment to the two pillars of ‘Panch Pran’, namely ‘Virasat Par Garv’ and ‘Ghulami ki Mansikta se Mukti’.
