Group Scarf

The Group Neckie (also known as a Scarf) distinguishes members of our Group from all others.

The meaning of the colours on our neckie are:

Black base - all Districts South of the Torrens River that runs through Adelaide.

Dark blue stripe - Groups within the local area

Green and yellow - Flagstaff Hill Scout Group

The peak of the neckie holds the Group badge.

 

Group Badge

 

The Flagstaff Hill Scout Group badge is made up of the following components

The Wreath is of wattle leaves and blossom representing the general encircling of our suburb by bushland and recreation parks. The acacia pycnantha (Golden Wattle) is Australia's floral emblem

The Mounted Horseman represents Colonel William Light, who surveyed the City of Adelaide. In 1837 he erected a flagpole at the top of what became known as Flagstaff Hill. This he used as one of his many trig points

Colonel Light is dressed in the uniform of a Colonel of the British Army Lancers in which he was commissioned. He carries a lance and flag indicative of the Lancers

The Horse represents the mode of travel in the era

The Fleur-de-lis are indicative of the Scouting movement.
