    St Georges Flag badge

    Hi all

    I have read the other thread about the parade and people's views. All good stuff.

    I saw on a site a St Georges FLag badge and wanted to know if there is a rule that would stop cubs to get this badge if they did the parade or is the badge reserved for something else.

    Thanks

    I presume this is the St George's flag which seems to be unofficially(?) worn by English Scouts next to (or in place of) the union flag (a bit like Scottish Scouts wear the Saltire and us in Cornwall wear the Kernow Flag -with special permission by Gilwell)

    Can I ask a question - without getting my head bitten off or without the conversation getting nasty.
    Why does Cornwall get to wear what is effectivly a County flag on their shirt (with Gilwell consent) and the rest of us don't? I can understand Scotland & Wales but I cannot understand how Cornwall can consider itself a country in its own right, and why they get special dispensation?

    Cornwall has a distinctive culture and history, a self-government movement, a language revival movement, and I'd really better stop there before I start biting off heads!

    Scottish Scouts wear the Saltire on our right arm as well as District and Regional Badges, to show we have our own Scout Council. We can also wear the union flag on our chest after going abroad.

    Language revival movement? What's that then, Dorsetish? Sorry, but no comparison.

    I suggest you read "Cornwall: A History" by Philip Payton.

    ISBN 1-904-880-05-3 for the revised 2nd edition in paperback. Philip Payton is the Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University of Exeter in Cornwall.


    "Cornwall Since The War" ed. Philip Payton, ISBN 1850220735 is also worth a read if you can get hold of a copy (try inter-library loans).

    St Georges Cross

    If Scots & Welsh Scouts can wear their respective national Flag, than why can't the English wear their's, I certainly think it's time we took a little pride in England & it's flag.

    Devon, Shetland, Guernsey & Jersey also have 'official' flag badges, in addition to their County/Island badge.
