The headgear, uniforms, and insignia worn by members of the Kriegsmarine were based upon the designs utilized by the Kaiserliche Marine and the Reichsmarine. The official regulations governing the uniforms of the Reichsmarine were issued on April 5, 1921, and they were embraced, with a few alterations, as the Kriegsmarine uniforms in 1935.

Within the Kriegsmarine, only certain groups of personnel wore collar tabs, including all personnel who wore the field-grey uniform, chaplains, and enlisted personnel.

The Collar Tabs of the field-grey uniform were worn on the field blouses and tunics of all ranks, with specific designs for Admirals, Officers, and enlisted personnel.

The tabs were composed of badge cloth, the litzen, and a cardstock backing.

The collars tabs for Admirals were officially introduced alongside the field-grey Admiral uniform on May 23, 1943. These tabs feature light/cornflower blue cloth, and a gold-coloured leafed arabesque design. The leafed design is primarily composed of hand-embroidered, gold-coloured celleon thread, although there may be rare examples produced with bullion.
