Ranks and insignia of NATO are combined military insignia used by the member countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

NATO maintains a "standard rank scale" in an attempt to match every member country's military rank to corresponding ranks used by the other members. There are two scales, though not all member countries use all the points on the NATO scales and some have more than one rank at some points:

  • OF1 - OF10 (bottom to top) are used for officers
  • OR1 - OR9 (bottom to top) are used for other ranks
