In most situations, the salute is made with the palm face out, the thumb holding down the little finger, and with the fingertips on the brow of the head.  Robert Baden-Powell chose the three-finger salute for Scouts to represent the three aspects of the Scout Promise:  Duty to God and King (Queen);  Help others;  Obey the Scout Law. The Scout Salute  The Scout salute is made by holding your right hand in the same position, but with your first finger pointing to your right eyebrow (and your elbow out). It is only used when in full uniform as a formal greeting or sign of respect e.g. when hoisting/breaking open the flag. The Scout Handshake  The left-handed Scout handshake is a formal way of greeting other Scouts of both genders used by members of Scout and Guide organizations around the world when greeting other Scouts.  According to the Ashanti warrior version of the story, then-Colonel Baden-Powell saluted them with his right hand, but the Ashanti chiefs offered their left hands and said, "In our land only the bravest of the brave shake hands with the left hand, because to do so we must drop our shields and our protection." The Ashantis knew of Baden-Powell's bravery because they had fought against him and with him, and they were proud to offer the left hand of bravery. The left hand is also closer to the heart, with that attendant symbology. Australian Scout Logo  The Three Tips (of the fluer de lys) - represent the three main parts of the Scout Promise:  Duty to God and Country Help other people Keep the Scout Law World Scout logo  The various parts of the World Scout Emblem have a significance to every member of the Scouting Movement. They stand for: The Encircling Rope - symbolises the unity and family of the World Scout Movement; The Reef Knot - which can't be undone no matter how hard you pull, is symbollic of the strength of world Scouting's unity and family; The Two Five-Pointed Stars - stand for truth and knowledge. The 10 points represent the 10 points of the original Scout Law: Honourable, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Clean  The World Scout Emblem is white on a royal purple background. In heraldry, white (or silver) represents purity, and royal purple denotes leadership and service The Scout Prayer Used by the Scout section.  Almighty and everlasting God,  By whose grace thy servants are enabled to fight  The good fight of faith and ever prove victorious;  We humbly beseech thee so to inspire us  That we may yield our hearts to thine obedience  And exercise our wills on thy behalf.  Help us to think wisely,  To speak rightly,  To resolve bravely,  To act kindly,  To live purely.  Bless us in body and soul  And make us a blessing to our comrades.  Whether at home or abroad  May we ever seek the extension of thy kingdom.  Let the assurance of thy presence  Save us from sinning,  Strengthen us in life and comfort us in death.  O Lord our God, accept this prayer  AMEN the scout salute world scout logo the scout sign scouts australis logo the sacout handshake
