Squad Markings

So in the new BA codex it has a Battle Company Consisting of 6 tactical Squads 2 assault squads and 2 Devestator Squads. My question is then would the assault squads be squads 7 and 8 for the purpose of the knee pad marking or is the order just willy nilly?

That is, as I understand it, traditional. But the BA were never the most Codex-oriented of chapters...

Thanks so I think I'm going to paint two squads with the two lightening ones as 2nd company assault marines(yellow helms) and then one from the 8th company with one of the skull ones.
