The devices that go on the knot are to indicate the level of scouting at
which the award(s) represented by the knot are earned. (how's that for
sentence structure?) For example, if a boy earns the first level of
Roman Catholic religious award, the Light of Christ, then he should wear
the small Cub Scout device on the knot. If he then goes on to earn the
Parvuli Dei award, he should add the WEBELOS device. If he goes on to
Boy Scouts and earns the Ad Altari Dei award, he may add the Boy Scout
device to the knot. And so on.
These are the same devices that are used on the adult scouter awards to
indicate the program the award is for, and they are available from
National Supply. From what I have seen, more and more council Scout
Shops are now carrying these in stock.
