Flag, Scout Oath, And Arrow Of Light
Posted On: 2021-05-26
EQUIPMENT: 3 Candles in a holder with the Arrow of Light symbol, 1 red, 1 white, & 1 blue
WEBELOS LEADER: Have you noticed the strong bond between our flag and the Scout Oath? Let me show you.
(Light white candle in the center)
One of the colors on our flag is white. It's the symbol of purity and perfection. It is the first point of our Scout Oath, our duty to God.
(Light Red candle)
The color red in our flag denotes sacrifice and courage, the qualities of the founders of our country. Red is the symbol of the 2nd part of our Scout Oath. Our Duty to other people requires courage to help anyone in trouble and the self-sacrifice of putting others first.
(Light blue candle)
Blue is the color of Faith. It represents the faith of our founding fathers and reminds us of the 3rd part of the Scout Oath. Our duty to ourselves requires us to be true-blue strong in character and principle and to live a life with the importance of being good. The candles have now lit the Arrow of Light. The Indian sign of the sun over the Arrow dictates that it's the Arrow of Light. The 7 rays of the Sun stand for the 7 days of the week and remind us to Do Our Best Every Day, the arrow... means to follow the straight path.
