World Scout Scarf Day
1st August 2014
The idea of "World Scout Scarf Day" on August 1 is that all active and former scouts are requested to wear their scout scarfs in public to make the "spirit of scouting" visible: once a scout - always a scout! In 2011 the day coincided with the World Jamboree in Sweden which was a perfect opportunity to show the close bond to all the scouts attending.
Of course, the scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the scout promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it.
