The National FFA Organization now boasts a record-high membership of more than 760,000.

The organization has chapters at the local, state and national levels, all of which frequently wear the famous blue jacket.

The jacket itself has a proud history dating all the way back to the 1930s, but the emblem on each jacket also has a deeper meaning.

The organization’s national emblem features five symbols representing the history, goals and future of the National FFA Organization. Each symbol has its very own meaning.

- The cross section of the ear of corn provides the foundation of the FFA emblem. Corn has historically served as the foundation crop of American agriculture. It also serves as a symbol of unity because corn is grown in every state of the nation.

- The rising sun is for progress, holding the promise that a new day will be glowing with opportunity.

- The plow signifies labor and tillage of the soil. The plow is the backbone of agriculture and the backbone of our nation’s strength.

- The eagle represents the freedom of the nation and new horizons in the future of agriculture.

- The owl is for wisdom. It represents the knowledge required to be successful in agriculture industry.
