About This Item

fleurdelisleather

The fleur-de-lis is a stylized lily or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol. While the image has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context, and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and members of the House of Bourbon. It remains an enduring symbol of France that appears on French postage stamps, although it has never been adopted officially by any of the French republics. According to French historian Georges Duby, the three leaves represent the medieval social classes: those who worked, those who fought and those who prayed.

In modern times the The fleur-de-lis is the main element in the logo of most Scouting organizations, representing a major theme in Scouting: the outdoors and wilderness. The World Scout Emblem of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, has elements of which are used by most national Scout organizations. The symbol was chosen by Sir Robert Baden-Powell as it had been the arm-badge of those soldiers qualified as "Scouts" (reconnaissance specialists) when he served in the British Army. When I was a Cub and Boy scout in Kansas back in the dim time, I was taught that the hand sign of scouting was based on the fleur-de-lis, which was French for flower of the Lis (Lys, Leie) River in Flanders.

It’s time to leave this TB to find another travel companion.

We leave our road mate at a secure place and hope the stay would be safe and not too long.

The location where we leave the TB is about 18km from the camp site in Rinkaby where the World Scout Jamboree were held in 2011 and several other large scout gatherings has been held both before and after that.

This summer there will be held a national jamboree at the Rinkaby camp in august with up to 20 000 scouts.

Spent an hour at Skåneträffen in Skåne, Sweden looking at trackables with my companions. Thanks for showing, I did not pick a single one up. I have a bit too many already.
