The sleeve patch emblem consists of a heraldic shield, divided into two parts.
In the upper part of it is the emblem of the Orenburg province (a golden eagle under Russian Imperial Crown upward on the white background and blue St. Andrew’s cross, separated by a blue stripe symbolizing the Ural River).
At the bottom, on a golden field, there are a bow and two arrows facing upward.
The shield is bordered with a blue ribbon with the date “1574” (the date of the formation of Host), bowed at the bottom.
At the top of the emblem there is a Cossack fur hat (papakha).
The Cossacks were people who guarded the borders of Russia when there was no regular army.
After the regular army was formed by Tsar Peter I, the Cossacks became an official combat unit, which helped to magnify the strength of Russian weapons.
The Cossacks are an integral part of the Russian people. The Cossack movement was a form of mass protest against feudal oppression. This free society was based on equality and liberty of the members.
The Cossacks carried military service to protect the borders from foreigners and had become an important part of the Russian army.
The Cossacks received eternal gratitude for being loyal and courageous defenders of Russia.
