The Hitler Youth Badge was a political decoration of Nazi Germany, awarded for various degrees of service to the Hitler Youth. The badge was first created in 1929, with formal regulations for presentation as a decoration formalized in 1933.

In all, there were three degrees of the Hitler Youth Badge,[1] these being the:

  • Hitler Youth Badge
  • Golden Hitler Youth Badge
  • Golden Hitler Youth Badge with Oakleaves

Most adult leaders of the Hitler Youth, in particular those holding the rank of Bannführer and above, automatically were awarded the standard Hitler Youth Badge. The badge was also frequently awarded to SS members who had some connection to the Hitler Youth.

A special degree of the Hitler Youth Badge, known as the "Hitler Youth Badge for Distinguished Foreigners", was authorized for presentation to non-German citizens who had benefited the goals of the Hitler Youth.
