Wahunsenakah Lodge has issued several patches in preparation for the upcoming 2012 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) to be held July 30-August 4 at Michigan State University. Most notably, the Lodge has issued their first flap shaped emblem that is not fully embroidered. As a matter of fact, it has no cloth or thread at all, since it’s made of bright yellow rubber.

Already dubbed “the rubber duck,” the unique flap will be classified as 333 F1, following the cataloging precedent set by the Occoneechee Lodge 104 rubber flap issued for the 2011 SR7B Conclave. 300 of the rubber duck flaps were made by Wahunsenakah Lodge, and sold at $10 each.

Also issued for the 2012 NOAC were 2  two-part sets of pocket flap with chevron-shaped pocket patch. Both feature the same design, with the only difference being the delegate set has a silver border (100 issued) and the trader set has a white border (400 issued). The design of the patches continues the Lodge’s theme of honoring the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War with their 2012 emblems.

The flap features silhouettes of Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee over the First National Flag of the Confederacy with George B. McClellan and Abraham Lincoln over the 34-star US Flag  that would have been used during the Peninsula Campaign of 1862.

The chevron-shaped pocket piece pictures the historic Battle of Hampton Roads between the CSS Virginia (formerly the Merrimac) and the USS Monitor, also known as the Battle of the Ironclads.
