The WEBELOS Badge colors should be worn immediately below and
touching the USA Flag emblem on the right shoulder sleeve, as if
it was a Den number (because it is a Den "emblem" of sorts). There
should be a short separation between the Patrol emblem and the USA
flag emblem for the wearing of the WEBELOS badge colors if your
Pack chooses to use the Patrol emblem and WEBELOS badge colors
The Quality emblem (Quality Unit/District/Council) goes one inch
below the WEBELOS badge colors or the Patrol emblem, whichever is
worn last. Only ONE Quality emblem is worn at a time now.
Don't worry about wearing the WEBELOS Badge colors with the Patrol
emblem...they are in the SAME WEBELOS "Den" (patrol), right??
And it doesn't matter if you have the older curved WEBELOS bar or
the new/present straight WEBELOS bar at the top of the
colors...it's worn in the same manner.
Hope this helps, Jeff....and do please come over and JOIN US here
on Scouts-L when you get a chance to do so!
