Hi there – I am wondering if the religious emblems of faith carry over from a cub scout uniform to a boy scout uniform or if it must be earned again in boy scouts. I know our religious organization has different programs for different ages for our emblem. Just wondering the logistics on this.
I believe Jessica is referring to the purple youth religious emblem square knot which may be worn on the uniform. They may wear the knot as Boy Scouts if they earned a Cub Scout religious emblem. There are actually devices (small pins) they can wear on the knot to indicate at which levels they received awards.
Scouters who earned a religious emblem as a youth member of a Scouting organization may also wear this knot. In fact, since I earned the Marian award as a Girl Scout, I wear the knot on my uniform.
