The WEBELOS Colors correspond to the three main program "colors",
(which, as some have found out, is the SAME colors used for the service
Cub Scouting yellow
Boy Scouting GREEN (to match the green jackets and sock tabs)
Exploring RED (to match the red jackets and sock tabs)
The shoulder loops don't correspond to ANYTHING PARTICULAR. For instance,
blue (not yellow) is used for Cub Scouts and Scouters; and yellow is used
for regional and national Scouters. Green is used for Explorers and
Exploring leaders and Red is used for Boy Scouts and Scouters. Orange is
used for Varsity and Venture Scouts and Scouters, and silver (grey) is
used for District and Council Scouters.
The color scheme for the loops were developed as part of the new uniforming
package for Scouts and Scouters.
Hope that clears it up further....
