Scout Patrol Flags
Patrol flags are fun to make and help identify a patrol
The traditional shape for a patrol flag is a pennant (BP nd:40). Flags should bear the patrol animal and the name of the troop, but the design of how these appear is up to the patrol. The easiest way to make a flag is probably to cut the patrol-designed shapes out of felt and sew these with a sewing machine onto a nylon or other cloth pennant. The shapes can first be sketched on the felt, making it easy to cut the right shape.
To help your Scout design their patrol flag, you can print them copies of this patrol flag outline (PDF). This PDF file contains one page with two pennant shaped outlines.
