Civilian and military usage
The National cockade is used mainly by civilians. The period of civilian-military administration in Uruguay from 1973 to 1985 made a strict distinction between civilian and military usage somewhat fluid at times.
Meanwhile, the police uses a red-white-blue cockade design which is based on the Flag of the Treinta y Tres.
