World Scout Scarf Day

World Scout Scarf day is a recent effort to encourage active and former Scouts worldwide to wear their neckerchiefs in public annually on August 1 as a symbol of the Scout promise and the spirit of Scouting. It has been promoted on Facebook and by Scouting organisations since 2007.

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!
Many people including prominent business persons followed the call and thus made the spirit of Scouting visible. The scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the Scout promise and for our Scout mission to leave the world a bit better place than we had found it.
