Romanian Armed Forces ranks and insignia

The Romanian Armed Forces ranks and insignia are the military insignia used by the Romanian Armed Forces.

Branch colors in the Romanian Armed Forces

The colors depend on the service branch (armă, literally "weapon") the bearer is a member of. They show on the shoulder slides which hold the rank insignia, on the band of combination caps, and on collar insignia. Because many different branches share a color (for example black or light blue), each branch has distinctive branch insignia (semne de armă), which is worn next to the rank insignia on the shoulder slides. Other militarized institutions, such as the Romanian Gendarmerie and the Military Firefighters Corps, also have branch insignia worn in the same way.
