A red “C” plus the Webelos emblem indicates the Webelos Camper rank, a red “C” surrounding an Arrow of Light indicates the Webelos Firelight rank, a red “C” indicates the Camper rank, a yellow teepee is added to the “C” to designate the Woodsman rank, a red fire signifies the Firecrafter rank, and the Minisino rank is marked by a green “M”. Firecrafter officers and advisors are recognized by special name plates.
