Welcome to the International Encyclopedia of uniforms and insignia from around the world. 
In this encyclopedia you will find thousands illustrations of rank insignias, badges and functional labels.

International Encyclopedia of uniforms and insignia is a nonprofit, nonpolitical association, which aims to collect information about uniform insignias, uniforms, badges, patches, etc.  from around the world.

Our NGO is an official Group-Member of Union Corps Saint Lazarus International - CSLI Czech Republic & Slovakia as of 27-04-2024.

Migration of data from the original system has been completed. Over 5,500 pages and more than 49,600 illustrations were manually transferred.
Now the country data will be gradually updated and new information will be added.

We are looking for country or subject editors and graphic designers to work with us on the illustrations for our encyclopedia.
