Where to Place Insignia on a Uniform
A Visual Guide for Badges, Pins, Insignia, Awards, and More
Select your grade level to learn where to place insignia on your Girl Scout uniform.
Girl Scouts from each grade level have one official uniform item (a sash, vest, or tunic) to display badges, pins, insignia, and awards. This item is required when girls participate in ceremonies or officially represent Girl Scouts. Girls wear the sash, vest, or tunic over designated official apparel or over a white shirt and khaki pants or skirt. Badges, pins, insignia, awards, and patches should be displayed on a sash, vest, or tunic only after girls have completed the requirements outlined in official program materials.
The adult member uniform includes an official Girl Scout scarf, tie, or vest worn with official membership pins along with navy blue business attire (when participating in ceremonies or officially representing Girl Scouts). For casual events, such as troop meetings, adults can wear the vest paired with casual attire.
