Yes, of course:
The colours of the differents arms:
- White: Infantry of the Line: Mechanized Infantry and Motorized Infantry (Grenadiers & Fusiliers)
- Dark Green: Light and Airmobile Infantry (Rifles)
- Maroon: Airborne and Special Forces
- Golden Yellow: Armor & Cavalry (Tanks, Reconnaissance, Antitank); inofficial the Tanks also wear old rose)
- Cambridge Blue: Army Aviation
- Bright Red: Artillery
- Deep Blue: Antiaircraft Artillery
- Black: Engineers and NBC Troops
- Crimson: Logistic Troops and Maintenance Troops
- Blue: Transportation
- Dark Blue ("Medical Blue): Medical Troops
- Silver Gray: Military Intelligence & Electronic Warfare
- Lemon-Yellow: Signals and HQ Troops
- Scarlett: Military Police
- Green: Auxiliery Services: Military Justice, Chaplains, PSYOPS
- Gold: General Staff, HQs

The colours of arms were inspired mainly by the old german ones, but also by US, British Army and Swiss Army.

I used oak leaves for the branch insignias. The branch insignias are very inspired by the branch insignias of the german bundeswehr, but also influenced by the british army, rhodesian army, us army, swiss army and french army.

In 2020 I created again two divisions in each corps with each one armored brigade and two mechanized brigades. The reason for that was, that the corps had to become too big without the divisional level. For several reasons I also wanted to give each corps a light infantry Brigade as 8th combat brigade.

I showed here in six steps how I have my orbat developed in 15 years. In fact there were about ten major steps and douzends of intermediate steps, which I can not show here. Some also were just dead ends.

Oak leaves! Of course (I was thinking in more "southern" trees as olive, palm or laurel :D ) if your symbols are german inspired! Thanks.

PS: The symbol of the HQ of a logistic brigade is very appealing, but unfortunately I can't understand the meaning. But others are just spectacular (the rangers for example) or very evocative (like the mountain troops).

The chain links interlaced are a traditional symbol for logistics, used for example by the canadian armed forces and the swiss army. I thinks it stands for the supply chain. I needed a insignia for the joint logistic units with supply, maintenance and medical service.

The symbols are NATO standard, taken from the unclassified allied publication APP-6 NATO JOINT MILITARY SYMBOLOGY. NATO is currently using the APP-6D edition, which I could not easily find, but I did locate the previous version, APP-6C. To my understanding there isn't really many significant changes between the two.
