    Question New flag help please

    Can any one tell me if there is any protocol now that we have replaced our "70's" style flags to the more up to date versions
    I can understand that a new flag for a new section should be blessed , but replacement flags ??
    many thanks

    Flags don't have to be blessed, it is a nice thing to do but then there is a few more bits of protocol when handling it (but not as much as a dedicated flag)
    For example a blessed flag should not be used as a camp flag and should always be transported cased (a dedicated flag needs an escort)

    PSV6, My comment on FS155051 was aimed at you as you were the original poster of the thread, and were the one asking about the blessing of Beaver flags.

    Sorry but I didn't know I had posted my question in the Beaver section of Scouting Talk but they are not Beaver flags and I didn't say which section they were from (didn't UK Beavers start April 1986 ?)

    i mentioned beavers , as I had had my flag blessed recently - having been advised to from several sources , so thought my comments relavant to your question.
