International Program Resources


International Flags

The International Department has flags of other nations available for loan to local councils.

Flags are 4 by 6 feet in size and are maintained for each of the more than 152 nations that have member Scout associations of the World Organization of the Scout Movement. The international Scouting flag is also available.

Normally not more than 12 flags are loaned at a time. Borrowing councils must pay the return shipping costs and insure each flag for $75 in shipment. The council will be charged for any loss or damage to flags not covered by shipping insurance. This can range from $25 to $75 each.

Requests for international flags should include date of use, a statement specify- ing how the flags will be used, nations preferred, shipping address, and the name and phone number of contact person.

To reserve flags, contact the International Department four weeks in advance.

This professional-looking exhibit is designed for display on an 8-foot-long table. The exhibit panel is approximately 4 feet high from the tabletop and approximately 6 feet long when set up. A supply of handouts will be included with the exhibit.

Borrowing councils must pay the return shipping costs and insurance coverage for $1,000. Requests should include date of use, shipping address, and name of contact person and phone number.
