Independent Australian Scouts's emblem contains the
traditional scout symbol of a fleur de lis with a star superimposed in each
of the two outer petals. The fleur de lis is an ancient symbol used to indicate
direction and to scouts represents the three parts of the Scouts' Promise
as guiding principles. The two five-pointed stars represent the ten points
of the Scouts' Code. In Independent Australian Scouts's emblem these stars
also make up two of the five stars in the national symbol of the Southern
Cross constellation. The sides of the triangle represent the plurality of
scout organizations that make-up the scout movement.
The emblem represents the many
affiliated scout organizations existing together in balance and supported
by the central organization - Independent Australian Scouts.
