If you want to wear an occasional badge on your uniform, you have a new group, a new badge for the group or District, then you need approval from the County Commissioner. It’s a fairly simple process; just send the design in. If it fails you will get the feedback. Though, to help you, here are some pointers…
- Occasional badges must feature the Scout logo
- Don’t use the WOSM logo
- Keep the design simple
- Use upper case letters if possible
- Use colours that complement each other so that the lettering is easily readable
- Use adventurous and exciting images
- Use good contrast images
Follow Scout brand guidelines.This is the preferred Scout logo, with adequate spacing – The logo must always be one colour. Usually, this will be Scout purple or black on a light background or white on a dark background. Occasionally the logo could be in a Scout Secondary colour.
The WOSM badge being used is technically copyrighted. The World Scout Badge is not permitted for use other than as a membership badge. It is the property of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement and can only be used with express written permission.
