Scout Emblem

  1. The three points of the trefoil stand for the three parts of the Scout Oath.

  2. The shape of the Scout badge means that a Scout can point the right way in life as truly as does a compass in the field.

  3. There are two stars on the badge. They symbolize truth and knowledge.

  4. The eagle and shield stand for freedom and a Scout's readiness to defend that freedom.

  5. The scroll bearing the Scout motto is turned up at the ends as a reminder that a Scout smiles as he does his duty.

  6. The knot at the bottom of the scroll serves as a reminder of the Scout slogan: Do a Good Turn Daily.
