I am wondering too.
I get the sense, from a quick reading of the Insignia Guide, that the
National Council has to approve *in advance* local awards that will be
worn as part of the official uniform. Temporary patches, CSP's, Lodge
flaps - I can understand those being pre-approved and delegated to the
local council but, square knots?
Has anyone else done this? Can anyone point me to a reference - not an
interpretation or opinion but, a reference?
Inquiring minds etc...
