About Independent Australian Scouts's Emblem

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. [Independent Australian Scouts Logo]
The emblem represents the many affiliated scout organizations existing together in balance and supported by the central organization - Independent Australian Scouts.
