Ki-Ro Badge

The Ki-Ro Badge Training Scheme

Training for Christian Beaver Colonies, Wolf Cub Packs and Scout Troops.

The Ki-Ro Scheme is a progressive religious training scheme drawn up to help Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in the knowledge and practice of their Religion, and in the proper fulfilment of the first part of their Promise; Duty to God.

The Scout Scheme offers them a progressive series of Tests to be passed as they move up from Tenderfoot to First Class. The requirements for passing the Tests are laid down in the various grades of the Ki-Ro Syllabus. On passing a Test the appropriate Ki-Ro badge is awarded.

It is obvious that the personal faith of each Scout cannot be tested or placed in various grades. But a person's practical knowledge can be graded against a given standard. The Ki-Ro Syllabus sets up a minimum standard of religious knowledge and practice which we hope will be reached by Christian Beaver Colonies, Wolf Cub Packs and Scout Troops.

The Ki-Ro Badge

Our Lord's name in Greek is KRISTOS or Christ. Its first two letters superimposed one upon the other is the symbol chosen as the distinguishing Badge for Christian Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts : the Ki-Ro Badge.

We were first given the name KRISTIANOI or Christians, i.e. followers of Christ, at Antioch about the year A.D. 42; so that our own name, as well as Our Lord's name, begins with the letters Ki-Ro.

The Ki-Ro sign was used as a secret sign of recognition between Christians during Roman persecution times, and it was used as a trekking sign to lead the Faithful to the gatherings in the Catacombs. In succeeding centuries it has been used as a Christogram, representing the name of Christ, in church decoration, on altar frontals, on vestments, and in Prayer Books.

There are 6 badges. One General Badge; a Green Ki-Ro badge (Gold Ki-Ro on a Green Background) which is worn by all Scout Masters, Leaders and Officers, and all other members of Groups which are committed to run the scheme, and 5 Award Badges.
