Our new group scarf badge was designed by Oliver Turner and launched in July 2019. But what makes up the new badge?

The People-

The light blue represents the Beavers

The dark green represents the Cubs

The green represents the Scouts

The beige represents the Leaders

The Fleur-de-lis-

Baden-Powell included a design for the Scout’s badge in his work, Scouting for Boys, which was a simple fleur-de-lis with the motto “Be Prepared” on a scroll below it. He reasoned that the fleur-de-lis was commonly used as the symbol for north on maps, and a Boy Scout was to show the way in doing his duty and helping others.

The plumes of the fleur-de-lis became symbols for Service to Others, Duty to God, and Obedience to the Scout Law. These three principles form the Scout Promise which is made by new Scouts as they join the movement.

The Rope-

A rope which encircles the fleur-de-lis and is tied in a reef knot at the bottom of the badge. The rope is there to symbolize the family of the World Scout Movement and the knot symbolizes the strength of the unity of the World Scout Movement.
