Navy unveils Shivaji-inspired new design for Admirals’ epaulettes

The Navy unveiled the new design of epaulettes that senior officers will display on their uniform as part of efforts to shed the remnants of its colonial legacies in customs and traditions.


  • The new Navy button reflects the new crest, sans the fouled anchor which was a colonial era vestige.
  • As per the Navy, the red octagon reflects the eight cardinal directions indicative of an all-round long-term vision.
  • It is inspired by the new naval ensign that was unveiled last year and inspired from the Rajmudra of Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj who had built the massive Maratha Navy which has a rich maritime legacy.
