Around the Spanish American War, the U.S. Army instituted a regulation prohibiting the National Guard from using the same insignia as the regular Army. Every state solved this in different ways, from adding state letters or name, to devising completely different insignia. Pennsylvania solved this by placing an enameled keystone in the center of the insignia. Their General Order No.3 of 10 Feb. 1898 established the colors: red, white and blue for units attached to Division Headquarters, red for the 1st Brigade, white for the 2nd Brigade and blue for the 3rd Brigade. These keystones also exist in a combination of red & white and blue & white.
