The Eagle Scout Badge (the ribboned Eagle Badge suspended from the
silver scroll labled "Be Prepared") is to be worn on all FORMAL
occasions, with preference to those occasions where Eagle Scouts are
present or in which Eagle Scouts are to be honored. At all other
times, ADULTS are to wear the Eagle Scout Square knot, if in uniform,
or the Eagle tie-tac or lapel pin, if appropriate. YOUTH are to wear
the Eagle Scout cloth badge ( the oval-shaped fully embrodered patch)
centered on the left pocket of the field uniform) and NOT the square
The Eagle Palms (bronze for five merit badges over Eagle, gold for
ten, silver for fifteen and combinations of the above for those above
fifteen) are to be worn on the ribbon of the Eagle Scout Badge during
FORMAL events and activities; centered on the square knot for ADULTS
and centered on the Eagle of the cloth badge for YOUTH members at
other times at the discretion of the wearer.
The source for this information is the National Eagle Scout Service
/National Eagle Scout Association and the Insignia Guide of the BSA.
