Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: Badge symbolism
Tue, 17 Nov 1998 14:48:37 EST
a scout asked about this last night and we didn't have a good answer for him:
what is the symbolism/meaning of the heart in the life badge?
eagle was pretty easy to explain, and we even gave a good shot at star
("you're a star; star as in polaris, a guiding star for navigating in life,"
etc.). all we could ad lib on the life badge meaning is that with life rank,
scouting is in one's heart forever, for life.
anyone know of any more formal "official" symbolism or like to add their own
