Custom fire department crests, patches, and embroidery
Why is a firefighter is still instantly distinguishable, even when not decked out in turnout gear and helmet? It's thanks to that small yet important symbol, the embroidered fire department crest
(or fire department patch in the U.S.). Whether you know it best as a "fire department patch", "fire department crest", "firefighter shoulder flash", or something similar, the embroidered fire dept. crest is immediately recognizable. The common feature linking almost all fire department embroidery designs in Canada and the U.S. is the Maltese Cross. In the sixteenth century, this cross style was adopted by the earliest known firefighters, the Knights Hospitaller (The Order of Saint John), A.K.A. the Knights of Malta, and it has come to symbolize courageous rescue and the preservation of health.
