World Scout Scarf Day 2013

On August 1, all active and former scouts are requested to wear their scout scarfs in public to make the "spirit of scouting" visible. 

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.

This year 5666 people from 45 different countries joined the event.
