About the IDF Pin Insignia Nahal Brigade Recon Sayeret Battalion
The Nahal Brigade was founded in 1982 as a regiment of several battalions, following the need for additional infantry forces during the First Lebanon War.

The brigade's emblem consists also four arrows, symbolizing the four battalions - Granite, Shaham, Basalt, and recon(Sayeret) unit.
