Collection: Belgian Brushstroke Moon and Balls CAMO
First appearing in 1952, this variation of the original brushstroke pattern is often called "moon & balls." Consisting of forest green and reddish-brown shapes on a khaki background, many of the green shapes appear from a distance as full circles while others appear only as "half moons"; hence the term lune et sphère was coined. It can be distinguished from other Belgian brushstroke-derivatives by the faint brush trails of the overlapping colors and the unique "sawtooth" shape encountered infrequently within the pattern. Although worn primarily by Belgian airborne, commando and marine units well into the 1970s, the pattern was only in production from 1952 until 1956.
