The Boy Scouts offer official guidelines for uniforms on ScoutStuff.org, which includes details such as the placement of the Order of the Arrow lodge insignia on the pocket flap and the positioning of a badge of office on the left sleeve. A sash displays all merit badges.
The badges included on a Boy Scouts uniform vary from person to person. Generally, the right sleeve of the uniform carries the American flag, one Journey to Excellence recognition, a patrol emblem and a musician badge. The left sleeve bears a council shoulder emblem, badge of office, Trained Leader emblem and den chief cord. The right pocket may carry a Jamboree insignia and Varsity or Venture strip. The left pocket displays service stars, embroidered square knots, medals and badges of rank.
