Nope.  According to our LO, NHQ owns all CAP logos used in an official capacity, including unit logos.  Our LO is a trademark lawyer so I'm assuming he knows how to read a contract.
Correction: *Civil Air Patrol* owns the copyrights, not NHQ. NHQ is not Civil Air Patrol.

And unless and until Vanguard proves they are capable of reliably producing products that are not complete garbage, I would ignore your Wing legal officer and source unit patches elsewhere. I recommend Moritz Embroidery in Pennsylvania. Quality work and made in America (Vanguard outsources to Chinese manufacturers).

You have Vanguard make your stuff, you run the risk of crap like this:

Back to the OP's question: scan your patch and post it here. I may be able to help.
