What is a Kiro Badge and it's Origin's


Two questions that the NCSF is often asked are "What is the Kiro?" and "Where is the Kiro Badge Worn?".


You can read the answers in detail by "clicking here" or visitng the Resources - Guidance and Information section on this website.

A brief explanation is given below :-


The Kiro is a symbol and not a thing.

The KIRO is made up of two characters superimposed on each other.

These two characters are the Greek letters X and P.

The Greek letter X is written ‘ch’ and pronounced ‘ki’; P is written ‘rho’ and pronounced ‘row’.


The Kiro Badge of any stocked colour is normally worn as a Group Badge

on the point of the Neckerchief or on the shirt sleeve below County and District Badges.
