INTERNATIONAL SCOUTING TRIVIA - SCOUT EMBLEMS
Each description that follows describes a Scouting emblem,
patch, or insignia from a different country. Please
identify the country that has the Scouting emblem, patch,
or insignia described. No country may be used as an
answer more than once.
My source material shows the insignia in black and white,
so you'll have to bear with me on descriptions.
Answers and a listing of the Scouters with the highest
number of correct responses will be posted during the first
week of June.
Please send responses by private post.
