    Patch & Pin Placement

    Where does that Patch go? How about this Pin?

    Uniform Diagrams:

    I recommend reviewing this document for visual patch identification:

    Patches and Pins go in the same spot on both the blue and tan uniform.
    Note the measurements on the insignia guide for help in placing certain patches.

    All Scouts:
    • "Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award" PATCH - This covers the right pocket flap. 
      • CAREFUL - Only sew the top 3 edges, leave the bottom edge open for access to the button and to be able to put pins through the patch
    • "Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award" PIN - This goes on the previously earned patch.
    • Summertime Pins - Right Pocket Flap (or through any patch worn on that flap)
      • 4 Colors to be earned in the Summer Between Ranks
    • Religious Emblems - Not worn for daily use. Can be placed on uniform above the left pocket for special occasions.
    • Relgious Emblem Knot - Centered above the left pocket flap
    • Veteran Unit Bar - Pack 314 is a 50 Year Veteran Unit. The Veteran Unit strip goes between the Council Patch and "314" Unit numbers
    • Occoneechee Council Strips - Special versions of these arrive yearly. You can choose to replace the standard strip on the uniform.
    • Journey to Excellence - Right Sleeve - note placement
    • Den Strip - Right Sleeve below the US Flag
    • World Scouting Crest - Half way between the shoulder and Left Pocket
    • Recruiter Emblem - Centered beneath the right pocket
    • Other Patches - Permanently put on the optional Red Patch Vest. Most can be temporarily worn on the right pocket of the uniform.
    • Academic & Sports Belt Loops - These are designed to go on the Blue Cub Scout Belt which can be worn with either the Tan or Blue uniform
    • Academic & Sports Belt Pins - These are not designed for the uniform.
      • There is an optional letter "C" that can be purchased to go on the Red Patch Vest. The Pins can then be placed in this letter.
    Webelos Scouts:
    • Webelos Colors - Below the Flag on the Right Sleeve
    • Webelos Activity Badges - Actually a Pin. It is pinned through the Webelos Colors - Your choice of which color to place the badge.
    • Den Emblem - Right Sleeve, see diagram
    • Webelos Rank Patch - Centered on Left Pocket
    • Compass Emblem + Points - To be worn as a temporary patch on the Right Shirt Pocket.
      • This is earned after The Webelos Badge is complete + 8 Webelos Activity Badges.
