meaning of the scout salute

Recommended Posts

Who know the deeper meaning of the scout salute.

 

Once I was told that the thum hiding the pink meant that the strong one protects the weak. Is this the real and only meaning? Or is there more?

scoutrudd - do you mean the Scout Sign. I was taught, and teach it myself, that the three fingers represents the three parts of the Scout Oath and that the circle formed by the thumb and pinky finger represents the worldwide circle, the bond that unites, of scouting.
