Indian Navy Unveils Distinctive Epaulette Design Inspired by Chhatrapati Shivaji

New Delhi: The Indian Navy has recently revealed a distinctive design for Admirals' epaulettes, a move inspired by the historic Rajmudra of Chhatrapati Shivaji. This innovative design was officially introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his address on Navy Day, celebrated on December 4 in Sindhudurg, Maharashtra. The new design is applicable to the highest-ranking officers, including Admiral, Vice Admiral, and Rear Admiral in the Indian Navy.


During his Navy Day speech, PM Modi emphasized the significance of the epaulettes carrying a symbol reminiscent of Shivaji Maharaj's army. Additionally, he announced the renaming of ranks within the Indian Navy to align with Indian cultural values. The unveiling of this unique design underscores India's commitment to the principles of "Panch Pran - Virasat Par Garv and Ghulami ki Mansikta se Mukti" (Pride in Heritage and Freedom from the Mentality of Slavery). The design itself features a golden navy button, an octagon, a sword, and a telescope.

This development marks a symbolic and culturally resonant transformation within the Indian Navy, reflecting a deeper connection to the nation's heritage and values. The new epaulettes not only signify the officers' ranks but also carry historical and cultural significance, adding a distinctive touch to the uniform of the Navy's senior-most leadership.
