Thses are called Verbandsabzeichen in German.

Thus using a search egine with texts like
Verbandsabzeichen
or
Bundeswehr Verbandsabzeichen
will give you plenty of pages/sites to study.

I started with https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_...der_Bundeswehr

And found several. Will give an approximate translation with them.

1.
Stamdienststelle des Heeres
Army NCO career office.

2.
Heerestruppenkommando, since 2008 Heerestruppenbrigade
Special brigade to support the Arm Air units and orther divisions who need extra support with Engineers, artillery, AAA, ABC.


3.
Logistikzentrum des Heeres
Army logistic center (disbanded 2008).


4.
Division Luftbewegliche Operationen
Army Air Division (disbanded 2014)

5 (subdued version).
Could not find it in this list. Probably a disbanded division.

6.
Heeresfliegerbrigade 3
3rd Army Air Brigade (helicopters) (disbanded 2007)

Mind that the borders (Bordierung) is important with these badges. Here they are all white with a black line, which means higher formation. Lower formations (e.g. brigades inside a division then have red, yellow or other borders on the same badge.
