So'jan officer in uniform

So'jan uniforms had no divisions in color or insignia. The only major difference amongst commissioned officers was the fact that flag officers wore a white baldric, which the so'jan referred to as a sash. Flag officers also wore insignia on their right shoulders indicating their position within the So'ja High Command. ("The So'ja Incident", "The Boolran Eye, Part 1")
