Patches and Emblems

Jump to: navigation, search
Patches and emblems[1] provide an additional way to customize a player's in-game appearance. They are a form of personalized cosmetic for captains in World of Warships. Patches are created from a mix of available symbols and backgrounds, while emblems (no backgrounds) demonstrate competency in battle by having requirements that must be achieved in order to attain them.

Choosing and Modifying

The location of the Insignia button.

The currently selected patches or emblem is displayed just inside the upper left corner of the Port screen top bar. This is the Insignia button. (The Privateer emblem is shown in the example image.)

Clicking the Insignia button brings up the patch/emblem selector screens — a series of menus showing the components and emblems available for selection.

Viewing Other Players' Patches and Emblems

Patches and emblems are displayed in a few places in-game:

  • By mousing over a players name in the team lists, both on loading and in match.
  • Mousing over a player name in your contacts list or chat box in port.
  • An enemy's patch or emblem will appear in the middle of the screen for a short time after he has sunk you in battle.
  • Over top of your ship information in the bottom left corner of the screen when spectating a match postmortem.


Patches are composed of two parts: symbol and background, each of which is the captain's choice. There are many symbols and backgrounds available to choose from.

The components shown below drop in daily containers. Additional patches and backgrounds are available in the Armory, and a few from other sources. See Special Patches below.

For a comprehensive display of normally available symbols, backgrounds, and emblems, and the ones in your posession, refer to your Captain's Logbook in Port.

Emblems can be earned by meeting fixed requirements. Emblems are arranged in sets of four, with each one in the set requiring progressively more difficult requirements and a higher tier ship (for class performance).

Currently there are two types of emblems; national performance and ship class performance. The national ones require a captain to place in the top three on their team on a victory by base experience earned in ships of a specific nation, while the ship class ones require the captain to maintain a certain average damage in the respective class over 100 battles.

Lists of National Emblems and Requirements

National emblems can only be earned in ships Tier VIII-X, and can only be completed in Random Battles.
