Units of the Oriente Hussars display their group insignia prominently, usually on the upper torso of a BattleMech or the turret-front of armor units. The insignia depicts a stylized white Oriente Hawk, its torso on a red background surrounded by a golden box. The wings of the hawk extend beyond the box reaching across a green, lozenge-shaped background. The insignia of the Third Hussars shows three interlocking rings.
