Boy Scout Joining Requirement 8

The fleur-de-lis symbolizes the fact that a Scout can always point himself to the best direction in life.

The three upper petals of the fleur-de-lis stand for the three points to the Scout Oath:

  • Duty to God and Country
  • Duty to Others
  • Duty to Self.

The two stars stand for truth and knowledge.
The Eagle stands for the freedom of the United States.
The shield on the Eagle represents a Scout's readiness to defend that freedom.

The scroll is the smile on a Scout's face as he does a good turn.
The knot reminds a Scout to "Do a Good Turn Daily".
