Madison Connect Patch
The Madison Scouts are proud to call Madison their home, and the connection between the Scouts and the Madison flag run deep.
In the early years, Madison did not have a flag that the corps could fly for parades and performances. So members Rick and Dennis Stone, with the help of their color guard instructor John Price, designed their own. In 1962, Madison approved and adopted their design.
The Madison, Wisconsin, flag consists of a light blue background - Lake Mendota (watch out for Pirates!) and Lake Monona - bisected by a white band symbolizing the isthmus between them. In the center of the flag is a black cross that symbolizes the four lakes (Mendota, Monona, Wingra and Waubesa) as well as the State Capitol. The gold circle symbolizes the dome of the State Capitol.

Our Madison Connect patch pays homage to Madison's flag and our history.
