The number of swords directly relates to the three countries forming LITPOLUKRBRIG. Below the hilt there is a ribbon on which the national colors of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine are presented. Above the swords there is the “LITPOLUKRBRIG” inscription in white. Brigade Badge is worn on the uniform sleeve by soldiers as a symbol of membership of the Brigade. It also reminds us constantly of the idea that guides us - UNITED FOR PEACE. Source:
