Messenger of Peace in Open Discussion - Program Posted October 7, 2019 10 hours ago, Liz said: But now that the World Crest is standard issue and no longer earned, nobody knows what it's for. Really? What about you others, do you think your scouts know what the World Crest is for? In my ignorance of current BSA custom, I have made sure that all new scouts in our Scouts BSA troop know what all the parts of the World Crest symbolize. (The discussion can fit nicely in the scoutmaster minute section of a meeting, after an influx of new scouts.) Probably that is just the influence of my WAGGGS/GSUSA-TOFS background. The international friendship/brotherhood aspect of scouting is important to me. And really, there are some decided similiarities between the WAGGGS trefoil and the WOSM fleur-de-lis.
