I know it is not from NY, but I recently read a post by Glenn Chase at the Kecoughtan Emblems and History Site News. This post on a new version of the Wahunsenakah Lodge # 333 Service Flap created by the change in the pocket size of the Scout Uniform.
Dr. Barry Green, Insignia Design Advisor for Wahunsenakah, spoke with Kelly Williams of the Krelman Company, manufacturer of the Lodge 333 flaps, and learned that the patches were enlarged to comply with new National regulations that specify a 5″ width. The original S2 flaps were 4 3/8″ wide. To accommodate the larger size the design components of the patch were enlarged, including the lodge name and number lettering, FDL, and reeds in the water. The increased size of the ducks makes the white tips of the blue feathers much more prominent. There are also evident color differences in the red and green areas, as well as a more blue appearance of the border rather than the teal of the S2.
Dr. Green pointed out that the intent was not to make a new “issue,” but to comply with the directive from National to meet the new guidelines.
See the full post here.
So have any new New York State OA issues been created by the change in pocket size?

Intelligence is overrated by any species that has it, and that’s provable by the fact that all intelligent species are outlived by a factor of a hundred to one, if not a thousand to one, by nonintelligent species, who don’t have the brains or perversity to destroy themselves or their environments.
