EMBLEMS RECEIVED AS A YOUTH

All Scouts and Scouters who received a religious emblem in their youth may wear the universal youth religious emblem square knot (No. 5014) centered above the left uniform pocket flap, if it is the only knot. Otherwise it may be placed in any of the positions above the left uniform pocket flap for knots. Scouts and Scouters who received the award as a Tiger Cub or Cub Scout should also wear the gold Cub Scout device (No. 5103C) centered on the knot to indicate the award was received as a Cub Scout. Those receiving a religious award as a Webelos Scout should wear the gold Webelos device (No. 5103K) centered on the knot. Similarly Scouts and Scouters who received the award as a Boy Scout should wear the gold Boy Scout Device (No. 5103D centered on the knot. Those who earned the award as an Explorer should wear the gold Exploring Device (No. 5103G) centered on the knot. If more than one emblem was earned as a youth, only one knot is worn and any combination of the appropriate devices may be worn centered on the knot. Explorers or Scout leaders who received the award as a Girl Scout, Camp Fire member or 4-H Member may also wear the universal religious emblem knot (No. 5014), but without any device.
