Queensland Scout  Badge Histories

Badges that identify Scouts Australia’s Queensland branch’s regions and districts are part of the Scout uniform, and have been so since scouting began. A lot of thought goes into the artwork of badges, and also into the names of these regions and districts. This website has been set-up to introduce scouts to the meaning behind the badge symbols and also the history of these badges.

The descriptions of each badge have been obtained from a mixture of oral recollections and formal documents. The work of documenting and updating the information is ongoing, and will be updated twice yearly. If you have any amendments, updates and interesting facts associated with the badge, please email the information to badgehistory@scoutsqld.com.au
