    I think I found the answer
    It goes back to when mounted knights used lance and shield —a corner of the shield was incut away to allow the lance to be rested on the shield which was held up close to the body thus protecting more of the knight with the greatest surface area of the shield.
    The patches and insignia graphically depict this in their design.
