The Ever Victorious Army is the name given to the Seanchan army because it has never been defeated. While it has lost battles, it is by description ever adapting and switches strategies and methods so that the next time it confronts the enemy, they'll be sure to win.

Seanchan helmet

A typical Seanchan soldier wears a uniform of red, green and gold painted steel plates and dark leather.[1][2]

"The helmet looked very much like some monstrous insect's head, with thin red plumes like feelers; the wearer seemed to be peering out through mandibles. It was painted and gilded to increase the effect, and the rest of the man's armor was also worked with paint and gold. Overlapping plates in black and red outlined with gold covered his chest and ran down the outsides of his arms and the fronts of his thighs. Even the steel backs of his gauntlets were red and gold. Where he did not wear metal, his clothes were dark leather."
