The BSA has published a colorful, 112-page Guide to Awards and Insignia, which is now available in Scout shops. It replaces the 2009-10 Insignia Guide, which is now obsolete. The new guide, No. 33066, includes official policy related to insignia and uniforms, as well as guidelines for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, and adult leaders.
Additionally, it offers chapters on training awards, Scouting honors and special recognitions, universal and non-unit insignia, religious emblems, and flags. It also includes a quick reference guide to knots and a special chapter on awards guidelines for district and council committees. The price for councils is $4.49, while the retail price is $5.99.
