May I suggest a possible solution to this concern - the BP guild emblem
combines the Arrowhead (or Fleu de Lis) and the Trefoil symbol. I've always
thought this was an excellent way of recognising both movements. BTW, just a
teeny-weeny, nit-picky little point - in Mike's description of patch "B", he
describes the emblem as BSA's emblem. If by this he means the Fleur de lis
with Eagle superimposed BSA emblem, then I would have a similar reservation
to Cecelia's - this emblem would exclude those of us who are not BSA.
However if we use the world scouting emblem (with or without the rope
circle) I can't imagine anyone having any reservations.
