International Activity Emblem

This temporary emblem is worn by Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and Scouters who participate in an international activity or program as defined by a local council. The embroidered, 3-inch emblem (No. 00144) is worn centered on the right pocket of the uniform shirt and can be ordered through local councils.

However, each council determines its own criteria for the wearing of this insignia.

Councils may purchase the international activity emblem, No. 00144, through the National Distribution Center.
