A white Roman numeral is painted on the inside edge of the shoulder plate, next to the squad specialty symbol, indicating squad number. The colour of both knee guards indicates company number in accordance with the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), Green (4th Company), etc.
