RA Logo represents the RA organization and each aspect has significant meanings.
- The Words - Royal Ambassadors: An ambassador is a representative in a court or nation other than his own. Royal Ambassadors are representatives of Christ the King bringing good news of salvation to people everywhere.
- The Verse - 2 Corinthians 5:20: "We are Ambassadors for Christ” serves as the RA Motto and reminds us that we represent Jesus Christ.
- The Shield: The shield stands for faith in Christ (Ephesians 6:16). This symbol represents the journey of faith and a commitment of having faith in Christ.
- The Bar: The white bar with the letters "RA" represents that an RA is a worker. It is to remind him that he is to work for Christ in all that he does (Colossians 3:17 & 23).
- The Crown: The crown represents Christ the King and is symbolic of a "crown of righteousness" (2 Timothy 4:8). As a follower and Ambassador for Christ, we are to stay focused on Jesus and His message to the world. The five points of the crown represents the five parts of the RA Pledge and also the five ideas of RA work; Bible study, Mission study, Prayer, Stewardship, and Service.
- The Laurel Branch: The laurel branch represents achievement and victory in the work of being an Ambassador for Christ (Matthew 25:21). Combining skills and actions help accomplish the goal of carrying the message of Christ to other people who need to hear this news.
- The Colors: Blue represents the boy's loyalty to Christ, His church, and each other. Gold represents the worth of each boy who accepts and serves Christ. White represents purity of living, which makes him an effective ambassador.
