Meaning of the Scarf Colors


By the Scouting tradition, Scarf Colors have a meaning or representation. The scarf of Bahrija Baden Powell Scouts is based on the colors found on the coat of arms which belongs to the City of Tours, France. Tours is the place were St. Martin is buried.


The edge of scarf is surrounded by a blue and black ribbon taken from this Coat of Arms. The red is the color of the mantle which St. Martin wore as part of the Roman Army Uniform. Tradition holds that St. Martin cut his mantle to give to an old man, who was shivering in the cold. Since St. Martin cut his mantle with his sword, a roman sword is found surrounded with laurels. The laurels is a symbol of sainthood.


Scouts imitate persons with good and noble values. St. Martin saw to the needs of other people, very similar to what scouts are expected to do all the time.
