The Organizational Color of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. Like the colors of armor regiments and battalions, those for cavalry regiments and squadrons have a yellow field and fringe with scarlet inscriptions and scroll outlines. Squadrons of cavalry regiments have identical colors with the addition of a squadron numeral in the upper fly.
The 11th Armored Cav is a Regular Army unit. It is a separate brigade-sized formation with its own artillery, aviation and support units. These full armored cavalry regiments are attached to corps headquarters; separate armored cavalry squadrons form the recon/scout elements of armored and mechanized infantry divisions.
