OA Logo Changes

The change in the OA logo was made official by the National OA Committee as part of their adoption of the 1998 Strategic Plan. In discussing actions taken to achieve the vision spelled out in the plan, it states:

We will adopt a new logo; one focused on the Arrow rather than the Indian. The Arrow is easily the most recognizable symbol that has its origin in our first ceremony. By taking the Arrowhead from the Arrow on the sash as our logo, we unify our image and strengthen the identity embodied in our name, the Order of the Arrow. 

New OA Logo

In late 1975 the Order of the Arrow began usage of a new logo that replaced the original OA jacket patch that had been in use since 1967.  There was a need for a simpler design that could more easily be re-created by local lodges and would reproduce well on the black and white photocopiers in use at the time.
