Difference in Quartermaster Square Knots? ~

Quick question! What is the difference between the black quill quartermaster square knot and the white quill quartermaster square knot? Do you wear one over the other on a specific uniform? Which one is worn for Scouts BSA uniform, New Century uniform, and Venturing uniform? I have been rather curious about his difference. Thank you for the intellect and help on this matter.

Navy background goes on the navy uniform. The white background was for the old white uniforms. I think some ships still wear white, but we’re all encouraged to go with the current uniform.

(yeah, I like the whites… but there’s a billion reasons to not wear them, and only one reason to wear them… and since that reason is “I like them” the other billion reasons outweigh it).
