Circa 1990-92, the Battaglione San Marco (expanded to a regiment in the mid-1990s), discarded its faithful, 1950s era M1929 style tri-colour camouflage pattern in favour of a modern design. Although production runs have varied depending on the manufacturer, the scheme can generally be described as a five-colour, soft-edged mottled pattern of black, olive green, pinkish-red, light grey and yellow-tan. To the observer this design almost appears as though it were spray-painted or airbrushed onto the fabric. This remains the standard camouflage pattern of the Battaglione San Marco today, of which several shade variations can be observed, based on different manufacturers and contract runs. This pattern is known colloquially as ginestra.
