    Introduction

    The Brownie program was started in England in 1914 for girls younger than Guides.

    Originally, unit members were called Rosebuds, but in 1915 the name was changed

    to Brownies. The first Brownie Pack in Canada was registered in 1920.

    Styles of Brownie badges

    A number of changes occur in the style of Brownie badges over the years. These

    changes make chronological identification easy. The dates are approximate as

    changes were not always clearly documented or may have occurred over a period of

    several years.

    Early, circa 1915-1935

    Triangular; brown (occasionally black); felt: symbols in yellow and less frequently,

    green, blue or red stitching. Could be hand embroidered.

    Circa 1935-1968

    Triangular; brown; felt or cotton: symbols and text "GIRL GUIDES" in yellow stitching.

    In general, cotton badges postdate felt badges.

    Circa 1968-1995

    Triangular; brown; cotton: symbols in yellow stitching.

    1995-2004

    Rectangular; brown; cotton: symbols and edge binding in yellow, green, orange or

    blue stitching. These badges are referred to as Outlooks.

    2004-

    In 2004 there were major changes to the Brownie program. The program was divided

    into nine Key areas, with the associated badges grouped under their appropriate

    Keys. We have followed this grouping in this list to make it easier to find the badges.

    These associated badges are all octagonal in shape.
