Unit Flag Decorations
boy scout troop flag

Our troop flag is fairly bland. Red and white with the BSA emblem in the center. But, hereís a flag from Pennsylvania celebrating the troopís 75 year history. There are three flag decoration items that can be added to a flag, if desired. These items can be purchased from the BSA at or your local scout shop.

Iíve not been able to find a picture of a troop flag that displays the veteran emblem and gold stars.
There are no images of the gold stars or fringes on so I'm in a bit of a quandry here.
If you send me a photo of your troop flag prominently and clearly showing gold stars, fringe, and veteran emblem so I can post it here, Iíll send your troop a thank you gift.

Scout On

Well, I've received pictures from Troop and Pack 33 in Takoma Park, MD showing their flags with gold stars and veteran unit emblem. They don't have gold fringe on the flag, but here's the image. (Click it for a larger version)

Our new flag will have a star.

BG - send me a pic of your new flag and I'll add it here.  I've still not seen a pic of an actual unit flag with stars.  Anyone, anyone?

Hi, I have a pic of my troop's original flag from the 20's or 30's that has a fringe as well as a gold star.  It also has blue star with a number which we assumed was for members in service in WW2.  I don't think it was official BSA back then, but done in the spirit of the standard "Son in Service" banners that were popular in that era.  How can I send you the pic?
