By Dan Beard

The Officers of each Fort of the Sons of Daniel Boone wear their rank on their left sleeve or the left corner of the cape of their uniform (Fig. 6).  Each officer has a different totem sign:

Official Emblems of Rank and the Official Flag

The Emblems

can be cut from any thick dark-green, red, or brown cloth or felt, and the patterns may be made by the reader himself by enlarging the ones shown in Figs. 14, 15, 16, 17, I8, 19, and 20, which are divided up into squares so as to enable the boys to copy them by making bigger squares and then sketching them in the proper size.

The Boone Flag

The lower triangle is bright turkey red, the upper one is buff or tan color, and the emblems are dark green.  The diagram of the flag is also divided into squares to help the boys to make a large flag from the pattern.  If each square is called a foot the flag will be twelve feet by nine feet.  If we call each square six inches, it will be six feet by four and one-half feet. But if each square is called two inches, it will be only two feet by one and one-half feet. So you see that with this pattern your mothers, sisters, or aunts, or you yourself, can make a flag of the proper proportion and of any size.
