Organizational Colors

Organizational Flag, US Military Academy (West Point). West Point, as distinct from the US Corps of Cadets, has its own organizational flag in the same proportions as the Corps of Cadets' color (4:5). Black, gray and yellow are the USMA's traditional colors. The Greek helmet is also used as a collar (branch of service) insignia for wear by military personnel permanently assigned to the USMA, and it figures in the shoulder sleeve insignia, worn on the field uniform by cadets, and on all uniforms by personnel assigned to the Academy staff.

Corps of Cadets

[West Point Cadet Colors] by Tom Gregg, 13 June 1997

US Army Organizational Color, US Corps of Cadets (West Point). Two of the US Army's color-bearing organizations, the US Corps of Cadets (West Point) and the 1st Battalion, 3rd Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) have colors proportioned 4:5. All others are 3:4.

The color of the Corps of Cadets has a black, gray and yellow fringe and is always displayed with cord and tassels in the same colors. My image is based on the official illustration and description in AR 840-10 -- which unfortunately omits to mention the colors for the scroll and title. I have assumed that they conform to standard practice for US Army colors, i.e. white scroll with inscription in the primary branch color and scroll outline in the secondary branch color. If anybody can confirm or correct this, I'd appreciate the information.

[West Point Cadet Troop Guidon] by Tom Gregg, 26 May 1997

The US Corps of Cadets (US Army Military Academy, West Point) is organized into three regiments, each consisting of a number of companies. Each company has two guidons. The "dress" guidon displays the regimental number and the company letter above and below the initials "U.S.C.C."      The "field" guidon just has the regimental number. The colors are officially described as golden yellow and silver gray.
