2024 Awards Profile: Penn Emblem Company, Decoration, Veteran Affairs Badge


Penn Emblem, winner of this year’s Innovation Award for decoration, was tasked with creating a badge for the Department of Veteran Affairs. Penn Emblem selected its PennFlex™ line of durable, thermoplastic emblems to create the three dimensional effect desired by the department.  Proudly made in the USA – fitting considering the customer – the PennFlex™ line includes many customization options, such as a matte or metallic finish.

The colors used in the Veteran Affairs badge are not often seen in standard PennFlex badges.   In addition to the precise details seen in the Eagle wings and rope border, the flags have subtle contrasting textures that take the viewers’ eyes from a smooth flat base of stars to elegant, waved ripples in the stripes. This texture transition furthers the overall depth of this visually striking design.
