Eagle Class of 2006 shoulder patch issued

Colonial Virginia Council issued a special shoulder patch to honor their 2006 Class of Eagle Scouts. 250 of the patches were ordered but they were only distributed to the 156 Eagle Scouts and their sponsors who attended the Council's Eagle Recognition Banquet on March 17th.

A unique aspect of this patch which is sure to cause confusion and consternation for years to come is the fact that there is no Council name or other indicator of its origin. Reportedly the name omission was not planned. While collectors and patch historians will surely debate whether the patch constitutes an "official issue" of the Council as a result, the fact remains that it was ordered by the Council and distributed to honor their Eagle Scouts and sponsors, and so it is included in the Colonial Virginia Council emblem listings on this site as a matter of historical record.
