Overview

Symbols of Scout Association of Venezuela:
The Flag - Attributes and Semiology: The current flag of Scout Association of Venezuela is the same of World Organization of the Scout Movement - WOSM: a dark murrey field that shows on its center the International Scout Emblem, the fleur-de-lis, surrounded by a circumference formed by a rope in whose base appears a reef knot (called square knot in USA), all enameled in white. This flag derives from the fleur-de-lis or lily which forms part of the emblem of every national scout organization and that it may be found on compasses and pointing devices which is interpreted as pointing to the true direction, the high one, which the Scouts should assume to as moving positively towards. The two stars alludes to the truth and the knowledge: the two most important element which is founds in the creeds, promises and oaths off all member organizations. It also reminds the stars in the sky and the outdoor element of the Scouting. The rope remembers the true brotherhood which exist among all the WOSM members and the reef/square knot indicate the compromise of being useful and the obligations of the service to the fellows.
As peculiar data, the Association members uses red wine neckerchiefs for attend events out the country, consolidating that shade of red like a specie of additional emblematic international color of Venezuela.
