Oath Keepers is all about traditional honor and values that are repleat in American history. The logo - patch, therefore needed to reflect history as well as visually be in keeping with uniform patches. The project was to build the logo / patch and to add in a shoulder tab similar to the one worn by the US Army Rangers.Color versions are in the making now that the overall patch design is settled. The first design level was used on tee shirts and as a wearable patch.The first concept employed the Concorde Minuteman in the design, however the Lexington Minuteman was the final choice. Also Latin gave way to English so “Custodes Rei Publicae” was translated to “Guardians of the Republic”.Oath Keepers is centralized on 10 orders (thus the 10 in the crest) that we WILL NOT KEEP!Oath KeepersFor more informationOATH KEEPERSMilitary, Veterans, and peace officers who will honor their oaths to defend the Constitution, will NOT “just follow orders,” will stand for liberty, and will save the Republic, so help us God. Our motto is:"Not on Our Watch!"For the final design of the simplified patch, two variations of the shoulder tab were considered. One in strict conformation with the Army Ranger style — the other conforming more accurately to the oval bezel.Shoulder tab variation 1Above is the standard base logo / patch design. To the right (top) is the artwork applied to a tee shirt. To the right (below) is the tab and logo together — applied to a very committed DHS Officer as a tattoo on his shoulder ! As a whole, this project moved along through its stages with great input from the association’s membership ... more about that HERE and HERE.Shoulder tab variation 2Extended Logo UsesThe line art nature of this logo lends itself easily to other uses such as challenge coins and jewelry items. Below is an example of this in the form of a conceptual (at this point) Oath Keepers signet ring for members of the association. As with challenge coins, signet rings are a subtle but visible form of membership and allegiance.Signet ring line art.Signet ring rendered tomodel the finished jewelry.Oath KeepersFor more informationWhat are Oath Keepers So Passionate About?Upholding the Constitution of the united States of America.
