Camouflage has the effect of making an object disappear or appear to be something else. The symbolism is therefore of information deliberately hidden or occluded. We hide - both from ourselves and others - those aspects of our personalities with which we cannot deal. This is a defensive mechanism which when highlighted in dreams, needs to be considered very carefully. Whereas camouflage in nature is a spontaneous occurrence, in Man it is a more deliberate act and for many is associated with war or dangerous situations. There may be a threat to our integrity or sense of control.
