The Guide Association (UK) Uniforms


All the uniforms are mix and match. Each girl/adult chooses which parts of the uniform she would like to wear, and which parts of the uniform are appropriate for a particular occasion. Many Guiders strongly advise Guides and Brownies to buy the badge sash so that they have somewhere to sew the badges they earn.

Rainbows wear a tabard over their normal clothes. They are available in Red, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Green and Violet (the colors of the rainbow). Each Rainbow unit chooses a color. At the front of their tabard, top middle, rainbows wear a patch version of their Promise badge with a rainbow arching across the top (Rainbows do not wear pins for safety reasons). Rainbows also have a green baseball cap with the Guide Promise badge sewn on the front.
