In 2011, to mark the ten-year anniversary of 9/11, The Greater New York Councils issued the first Council Shoulder Patch in a series that would highlight and share the icons of New York City with our Scouting Family worldwide. The recent completion of the Freedom Tower has helped to revitalize an area forever changed in 2001 and the edifice now stands as a testament to our nation’s fortitude and resilience. To celebrate this historic event, GNYC is proud to release the next edition of the Big Apple Series highlighting the Freedom Tower and its place in the New York City skyline. These patches are authorized for uniform wear.
The set consists of six white-bordered patches: one for GNYC plus one for each of the five boroughs in NYC. We are also proud to release for purchase a special, limited edition silver-mylar bordered collector’s set of these CSP’s. Only 100 sets of these silver-mylar bordered patches were created and they will only be sold in sets.
