    World Scout Flag

    1922 - ?

    Displaying the World Scouting Crest, these flags are made available only through the World Scout Bureau which is headquartered in Switzerland. These flags and other articles bearing the World Scout Crest were promoted as a symbol of World Scouting especially to Scouts in the United States and elsewhere to make them more aware that Scouting was an international movement. The Scouting program had started in England under the direction of Lord Robert Baden Powell and U.S. Scouts were probably the least aware that they were part of a world-wide organization, not just a national one. This flag was donated by Jim Potjunas on the troop's tenth anniversary in 1985.
