Patch Placement

This chart shows the placement of some of the most common patches, both required and awarded.  

If you ever have any questions about patch placement, ask your den leader or a member of Pack leadership--we're happy to help!

BSA patches are not typically the iron-on type; they should be sewn on or attached by patch adhesive, such as Badge Magic (available at the Scout Shop or online).  

Special Note:  The World Crest Emblem (round, purple badge worn above the left pocket on all scout uniforms) may have a white felt backing (patches made before 2012).  If you're using Badge Magic to attach this patch, carefully remove this felt backing before applying the adhesive.
