This is perfectly legal. A couple of years ago, Webelos dens could be
numbered or named. If named they could wear an appropriate patrol medallion.
If you look in the Insignia Control Guide or even a recent BSA Supply catalog
you can see this. I'm sure this (like allowing Webelos to wear the tan
scout shirt[with blue loops]) was to help in the Cub-Boy Scout retention.
