Hey does anyone know the meaning being the blue badge with the overlying broken rose often displayed on the memorial pages?  I don't know the specific name of that image so I am having trouble googling it to find out.  I remember reading about it somewhere but can't remember where.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

It signifies a fallen officer.

Thanks DFrost...I know it has to do with a fallen officer.  My question was what does each symbol stand for.  The blue badge, the broken rose, etc....  I remember reading somewhere that each thing has a specific meaning.

This info is from  http://www.nleomf.com/media/mediaFAQ.htm


 


Q: What is the meaning of the Rose and Shield logo?

Unlike many other memorials, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial does not include a central statue. When you arrive at the very center of the Memorial, on a slightly convex surface, you will find the bronze medallion of a shield and a single rose, surrounded by an ivy wreath (a Christian symbol for resurrection). The rose and shield logo incorporates the strong preference that a badge should be featured as part of the Memorial.


The distinctive rose and shield logo is the logo of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and has come to represent the service and sacrifice of our nation's law enforcement officers.

Thank you girlinbrown.  I was on that site earlier and I couldn't find it.  I give you a brownie but I ran out of milk.

Pain is weakness leaving the body.

Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal.
