But what isn’t always clear is what the artwork on the merit badges themselves represents. Some are easy to figure out: Two dogs on Dog Care, a pair of paddles on Canoeing and a camera on Photography.
Some aren’t so obvious: What exactly are we looking at on Archaeology, Chemistry and Graphic Arts merit badges, for example? For the answers, I did some of my own research by looking through merit badge requirements for clues. Scouts who take Archaeology merit badge find and analyze history through objects like these.
Those events are found in the Olympic Games, so it makes sense the merit badge art includes the winged foot associated with Hermes, one of the Greek gods who resided atop a mythical Mount Olympus.
A distilling flask, which is a round-bottomed glass instrument used for distilling things, is what you’re seeing on Chemistry merit badge, which teaches Scouts about this important STEM field. Whether they collect seashells, cars, trains, butterflies, baseball cards or something else entirely, Collections merit badge is for them. The Eagle-required Emergency Preparedness merit badge makes perfect sense for Scouts wanting to Be Prepared. The cross could be a road sign or an ambulance-style cross. The house must represent the plan Scouts make to prepare for a fire or explosion in the home. But what are those six green marks? Mike, in the comments below, explains that the two almost-vertical lines are lightning strikes.
As for the merit badge art, the left side shows CMYK, the four-color process used for printing most documents.
On the right is halftone dots, a technique that generates a gradient-like effect, explains commenter Mark. Thanks to commenter Jeff for this explanation: The uud symbols represent the quarks (two up and one down) in a proton. The black ring in the patch represents a particle accelerator and the e is trying to show the accelerator is using electrons. I guess I’d know all that if I had earned the fascinating Nuclear Science merit badge. I see a goldfish, a cat and … what exactly is that blue circle behind the fish supposed to be?
Anyway, Pets merit badge is a great way for Scouts to learn about responsible pet ownership.
Scouts who earn the new Programming merit badge practice writing and modifying code in three different programming languages.

In Radio merit badge, Scouts learn about the different ways to send and receive messages over the air.
One of the newest merit badges, Robotics merit badge lets Scouts built and test an actual robot.
Speaking of cool, the art on the Robotics patch features the Mars rover on the surface of the red planet.
A weather vane is what our ancestors used to determine the speed and direction of wind before we could get that information on our TVs, computers and smartphones. In the GIF, the second vertical line looks like it might be a tornado, or possibly a seismograph reading.
The schematic symbol on the Electronics merit badge is a transistor (specifically a PNP-type transistor), the fundamental component of nearly all modern electronics.
And yes, you’re right about the Morse Code symbols (DAHdididit dididit diDAH) spelling BSA on the Radio merit badge.

So if you’re a counselor for one of these merit badges, please feel free to add information in the comments section.
Same with Dentistry merit badge, where Scouts learn what’s really behind a winning smile. That’s true of the art for Entrepreneurship merit badge, which depicts the act of reaching for the stars (or, technically, a singular star). No, the Inventing merit badge depicts one of the original inventions in history: the wheel. One of my colleagues said it looks like the goldfish is wearing a football helmet, but that just seems silly. That lesson is represented in the artwork by jagged red lines symbolic of radio transmissions.

Weather vanes are still used today, but Scouts who earn Weather merit badge learn about much more exciting elements of weather like tornadoes and hurricanes. The 1947 invention of the transistor by scientists at Bell Telephone Laboratories was arguably the most pivotal development of the 20th century in that it permitted the miniaturization of electronic devices and a great improvement in energy efficiency.
As much as many folks think that Morse Code is antiquated and obsolete, it is very much alive and in use in amateur radio. I work in a Scout Shop and there is no other badge that parents are stumped on more compared to that. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location.

The inward-pointing arrow is a nod to the Energy merit badge requirements that have Scouts discuss ways to reduce energy use. It can be sent by hand and copied by ear through signal conditions that would make it nearly impossible to receive voice messages.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
That message is hard to see in an embroidered patch, but this picture helps you see it more clearly.
Ironically, Morse has become even more popular since the requirement to learn the code in order to obtain a license was dropped. Tritium decays to helium-3 by emitting an electron and a neutrino with a half life of just over 12 years.
So the badge is depicting deuterium, which is an isotope of heavy hydrogen consisting of a proton and a neutron.
