Patch Call

The Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control patch is in the state’s distinct boot-like shape. At the center, the Louisiana seal shows a pelican, the state bird, with its head turned to the left in a nest while feeding its three young.

The patch of the Wayland, Massachusetts Police Department depicts a historic scene. Pilgrims are waving a symbolic white cloth as the East Sudbury Plantation, which later became Wayland, was created.
