"More importantly, why would a Brit like Baden-Powell pick a "French" symbol like a fleur-de-lys?"

Rumour has it that he had whittled the choices down to either a fleur-de-lis or frog legs.
Yet another momentous decision point in the timeline of history that too often goes unnoticed by the ungrateful masses.
