The First Class Boy Scout Badge
THE SHAPE:

The three-point design of the top half is like the north point of an old sailor's compass. This shows that a Scout is able to point the right way in life as truly as the compass points it in the field.
THREE POINTS:

The three points of the trefoil are like the three fingers used in the Scout sign. They stand for the three parts of the Scout Oath: duty to God & country; duty to others; duty to yourself.
EAGLE & SHIELD:

The eagle and shield, national emblem of the US, stand for freedom and a Scouter's readiness to defend that freedom.
TWO STARS:

The two stars stand for truth and knowledge of the Scouting movement. They guide you by night and suggest a Scout's outdoor life
SCROLL:

The scroll is turned up at the ends to remind us of the corners of a Scout's mouth raised in a smile as he does his duty. The Scout motto is printed across the scroll.
KNOT:

The knot attached to the bottom of the scroll represents the Scout slogan, Do a Good Turn Daily. Learn to Tie the Knot
