    Default Three Keys patch

    Does anyone recognise the attached image?

    It appears to be a uniform patch. Searching on Google using "three keys" as a symbol, patch etc took me down various roads: Dan Brown, Girl Guides, Boxer Rebellion and more.

    Thanks

    Default Three Key Patch

    Does anyone have any further information on the three key patch? I have seen it a couple times now, but I can't seem to find any information other than it hails from the US...

    It looks like a modern interpretation of symbols used by the Knights of the Crusade.

    The all seeing eye, the Saturn square, and the cross laid on side.

    There are also other Christian symbols there.

    The multi cross and the fingers of God at the end of what look like keys, and of course the keys being the symbol of St Peter.

    Perhaps you have an army ready to rise up against Islam? The other thing of interest is the use of the diamond shape instead of triangles. The diamond is used as a warning.

    I'm probably wrong and the badge might belong to the Girl Scouts

    It is an emblem that is utilised by a company that makes clothes for skate boarders called Rogue Status, whose website is: http://www.roguestatus.com/ and no I've not tried to find the patch on there.

    Not a very exciting conclusion

    "oh great... the symbologist is here...." says the head of the Swiss Guard in Angels and Demons. He has a point.
    Infinity Journal "I don't care if this works in practice. I want to see it work in theory!"

    - The job of the British Army out here is to kill or capture Communist Terrorists in Malaya.
    - If we can double the ratio of kills per contact, we will soon put an end to the shooting in Malaya.

    It's a good thing, because that was a real waste of time trying to even find it on that site.
