The insignia is a hexagonal black shield with a peaked head, and rounded at the tip.
In the center of the patch there is a stylized image of a flying (hovering) owl and a curly ribbon of the colors of the National Flag of Russia (at the bottom: red, blue, white).
The owl was chosen the symbol for the emblem for its excellent eyesight and hearing, as well as the ability to vigilantly monitor the surroundings.
The owl is a bird for which there are no secrets even under the cover of darkness.
At the bottom of the sleeve patch there is the abbreviation of the service “VOHR” – armed paramilitary security. The inscription at the top reads: “RUSSIAN MVD”.
