Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Scout Sign
Boy Scout Sign
The Scout sign shows you are a Scout. Give it each time you recite the Scout Oath and Law. When a Scout or Scouter raises the Scout sign, all Scouts should make the sign, too, and come to silent attention.
Scout Salute
Scout Salute
The Scout salute shows respect. Use it to salute the flag of the United States of America. You may also salute a Scout leader or another Scout.

Give the Scout salute by forming the Scout sign with your right hand and then bringing that hand upward until your forefinger touches the brim of your hat or the arch of your right eyebrow. The palm of your hand should not show.

Scout Handshake
Boy Scout HandShake
The Scout handshake is made with the hand nearest the heart and is offered as a token of friendship. Extend your left hand to another Scout and firmly grasp his left hand.
Only use this handshake when both people are in uniform.
Square Knot
Square Knot
The square knot is also know as the joining knot because it can join two ropes and because it is the first knot Scouts learn when they join the BSA. It has many uses:from securing bundles, packages, and the sails of ships to tying the ends of bandages.

To tie a square knot, hold one rope end in each hand. Pass the right end over and under the rope in your left hand and pull it snug. Next, pass the rope now in your left hand over and under the one now in your right, and pull it snug.
Remember, right over left, left over right.

Describe the Scout Badge
Scout Badge
The three-point design of the top half is like the north point of an old sailor's compass. This shows that a Scout is able to point the right way in life as truly as the compass points it in the field.
Three Points
Scout Oath
The three points of the trefoil are like the three fingers used in the Scout sign. They stand for the three parts of the Scout Oath: duty to God & country; duty to others; duty to yourself.
Eagle and Shield
Scout Requirements
The eagle and shield, national emblem of the US, stand for freedom and a Scouter's readiness to defend that freedom.
Two Stars
The two stars stand for truth and knowledge of the Scouting movement. They guide you by night and suggest a Scout's outdoor life
Boy Scouts of America
The scroll is turned up at the ends to remind us of the corners of a Scout's mouth raised in a smile as he does his duty. The Scout motto is printed across the scroll.
Good Turn
The knot attached to the bottom of the scroll represents the Scout slogan, Do a Good Turn Daily. Learn to Tie the Knot
