With regard to the knots for Religious Emblems:
1. These are emblems given out by the various religious groups,
NOT scout awards. The proper term is Emblem, not Award.
2. The knot for emblems earned as a YOUTH is a Silver Knot on
a Purple Background. Only One is worn.
3. A Cub may wear the knot once he has earned an emblem as a
Tiger, or Cub. If a tiger emblem was earned, the Cub Device is
pinned on the knot.
4. A Scout may wear the knot once he has earned an emblem as a
Tiger, Cub, Scout, or Explorer. If a Tiger or Cub emblem was
earned, he MUST use the cub emblem. f only a Scout level
emblem was earned, only the Knot is worn. If both Cub and Scout
levels, then both pins are worn.
5. Explorers use the same rules as Scouts.
6. Adults use the same rules as Scouts for the Youth emblems.
The Emblem for the Adult level Emblems, such as the Shofar,
Saint George, etc. is a PURPLE KNOT on a SILVER BACKGROUND,
(the reverse of the youth knot).
