meaning behind all the parts of the Eagle Scout emblem?

Postby PanchoLuna » Tue Mar 17, 2009 10:30 am

I have 3 new Eagle scouts and I would like to know what the meaning of all the parts of the Eagle emblem. Like the patches before Eagle, all the parts have a meaning. Please let me know what you know or point me in the right direction.

Thanks for your time!

I believe the parts mean the same as they do on other scout rank badges.

Thanks, both of you. Is there any more meaning behind the red, white and blue ribbon other than the association to our nation's flag?

Try this.

Eagle Scout Challenge
The foremost responsibility of an Eagle Scout is to live with honor. To an Eagle Scout, honor is the foundation of all character. He knows that "A Scout is trustworthy" is the very first point of the Scout Law for a good reason. An Eagle Scout lives honorably, not only because honor is important to him but also because of the vital significance of the example he sets for other Scouts. Living honorably reflects credit on his home, his church, his troop, and his community. May the white of the Eagle badge remind you to always live with honor.
The second obligation of an Eagle Scout is Loyalty. A Scout is true to his family, Scout leaders, friends, school, and nation. His loyalty to his troop and brother Scouts makes him pitch in and carry his share of the load. All of these help to build the loyalty that means devotion to community, to country, to one's own ideals, and to God. Let the Blue of the Eagle badge always inspire your loyalty.The third obligation of an Eagle Scout is to be courageous. Courage has always been a quality by which men measure themselves and others. To a Scout, bravery means not only the courage to face physical danger, but also the determination to stand up for the right. Trusting in God. With faith in his fellow man. He looks forward to each day, seeking his share of the world's work to do. Let the red of the Eagle badge remind you always of courage.
