Boy Scout patches designating rank, which are also called rank badges, were first issued in 1910 in Tenderfoot, First Class, Second Class, Life, Star, and Eagle levels. Embroidered merit badges or patches issued the same year include ones for knowing first aid, riding a bicycle or horse, understanding electricity, and playing an instrument. Other embroidered patches worn by Boys Scouts bear the words “Be Prepared,” the organization's motto.
