Emblem of BOPE

BOPE’s emblem is rather atypical for a police unit: a black disc, representing the permanent fight, is circled by a red frame as a symbol for the blood lost during combat. In the middle of the disc is a skull nailed by a knife from top to bottom which means the victory over death. This is ornamented by two golden crossed pistols symbolising the militarised police.
