The shoulder cords of a military uniform tell the world what your rank is and what branch you belong to. The colour of the shoulder cord can change depending on the branch of the military you belong to. In the Australian Army, the colour of the stripe will be the same colour as your hatband.

Sleeve insignias on military uniforms are called ‘shoulder cords’. They are typically worn on the upper left sleeve of a military jacket, but they can also be worn on the upper right sleeve. Departmental insignia is worn on the shoulder or sleeve to indicate a military member’s branch or service.

Military shoulder cords are worn by commissioned officers. They are worn on the left shoulder of a uniform. The right shoulder is reserved for wear of rank insignia. There are two types of military shoulder cords: one is worn by Army and Air Force officers, the other by Navy officers.
