Brigada Mecanizada Independente
(Independent Mechanized Brigade)

[BMI guidon]
image by Jorge Candeias, 16 Dec 2003

Description: Shield of silver, five ancient inescutcheons of blue, disposed in cross, those in the flanks facing the center, each charged with eleven silver bezants, 3, 2, 3, 2, 1; diminished and battled border of blue.

Symbology:

  • The silver in the field aludes to the knowledge that this Great Unit provides, as Inter-Arms School of the Army, just as happened with the Division Nun’Álvares, its predecessor.
  • The ancient inescutcheons, arms of Portugal before El-Rey D. Afonso III, give alusion to the contribution of the Brigade in its mission in the defense of the national territory.
  • The diminished border characterizes a Territorial Command and is battled as a difference from the Independent Territorial Commands of the Authonomous Regions; Its colour is that of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

The unit colour is, as usual, a full banner of the arms, which are Sable a Lebanon cedar Argent between three bees Or ordered 2:1.

António Martins-Tuválkin, 5 Mar 2010

On 23 January 2009, the Portuguese Army Chief of Staff approved the arms (and, implicitly, the guidon) of the newly created Portuguese Army Engeneering Unit no.6 (Unidade de Engenharia N.º 6: UnEng6/FND/UNIFIL), raised to serve in the Portuguese contingent in UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon), from July to December 2009.
The guidon is per regulation a square banner of the arms, which are Sable a honeycomb of six cells Or voided Sable set three and two and one each containing a cedar Or. (The rest of the CoA, motto and crest is also interesting, although unaltered to flags.) This design was authored, as usual, by Lt.-Col. Pedroso da Silva, of the army's Heraldry Bureau. Its symbolics refer to the labour skills of bees and to the host territory.
