Ecuador - Fuerza Naval / Armada - Rank Insignia
The rank structure of the armed forces generally conformed to that used in the United States, except that Ecuador did not employ all of the ranks found in the United States military. The navy had eight officer ranks from ensign to vice admiral. Naval enlistees had eight grades from the equivalent of seaman to master chief petty officer. Naval officers wore gold stripes indicating rank on the lower sleeve of the blouse. Navy enlisted personnel wore red or yellow stripes, as appropriate, on shoulder boards or upper sleeve of the uniform.
The three services had dress, semi-dress, service, and field uniforms for officers and dress, service, and field uniforms for enlisted personnel. Navy winter service uniforms were navy blue and white. The armed forces also had summer uniforms.
