Promotion of World Scout Scarf Day began only in 2007 by a campaign on Facebook. Every former Scout worldwide is encouraged to wear his or her neckerchief in public on August 1, that would be a symbol of the Scout promise and the spirit of Scouting.
Scout's scarf, or a neckerchief, is one of the symbols of Scouting. They are a part of Scout's uniform, that is very practical. For instance, neckerchiefs were chosen, since they can be easily used as a sling or a bandage by a Scout in need.
Scout's neckerchiefs may have different colors and emblems, that depends on the region, organization, title and sex. Neckerchiefs are tied up by a special knot, that is called the Friendship knot. This decorative knot originates in China and in recent years became very popular among Scouts, that lets omit usage of a woggle.Remind me with Google Calendar
