Coat of arms of the Colombian Marine Infantry

This is the Marine Infantry section of the Military ranks of the Colombian Armed Forces.
In Colombia, the Marine Infantry is a part of the Colombian Navy and not a full service branch on its own. Being tasked with amphibious and riverine and littoral operations, the MI presents a somewhat odd combination of ranking names derived from the Army, combined with naval insignias.

The tables below display the rank structures and rank insignias for the Colombian Marine Infantry personnel.[1]
