History

The BSA approved the right pocket flap of the Scout uniform as a place for Order of the Arrow insignia in the mid-1950s. Finally in 1961 Uwharrie Lodge issued its first flap. The design was simple including the lodge totem turtle, WWW, and the lodge name and number. In a letter dated April 21, 1961 Scout Executive Bunn Hackney advised Arrowmen that they could purchase the new pocket patch at the Area Fellowship. Each member attending the fellowship could purchase two flaps for $1.00 each. (http://lodge70.org/lodgehx/Uwharrie/Uwharrie%20History%2020150622.pdf)
