In the centre of the sunflower is one red oval disk, where is written the abbreviation "АРМ" ("ARM") which stand for Армија на Република Македонија (Army of the Republic of Macedonia). The letters are always in white. Usually the hats, which are part of the uniform, bear the emblem and its diameter is 40 mm. The emblem is the same for all members of the Army, except for the generals. Generals' emblems are always surrounded by green laurel branches.
