#worldscarfday is August 1st


In 2007 at the occasion of the 100 anniversary of the Scout Movement, the Austrian Scout Association declared August 1 a “National Scout Scarf Day” and asked all active and former scouts to wear their scout scarfs in public. Many people including prominent business persons followed the call and thus made the spirit of scouting visible.

So, get your Scarf and Woggle and wear it!

It’s also during the  22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden!

If your on Twitter, please retweet using #worldscarfday.  Please post to Facebook.

There are two Facebook Pages dedicated to this.  Mine and Micheal’s.

(I am borrowing what he posted on his)

Im Jahr 2007 haben die österreichischen Pfadfinder anlässlich des Jubiläums “100 Jahre Pfadfinder” den 1. August zum “Tag des Halstuchs” erklärt und alle aktiven und ehemaligen Pfadfinder aufgerufen, ihr Halstuch zu tragen. Viele – auch prominente – (Ex-)Pfadfinder sind dem Aufruf gefolgt und haben den Pafdfindergedanken damit sichtbar an die Öffentlichkeit getragen.

Leider ist das eine einmalige Aktion geblieben. Es wäre doch schön, den Aufruf jedes Jahr zu wiederholen und den 1. August als “Tag des Halstuchs” quasi zu ‘institutionalisieren’.

Bitte die Information an alle Pfadfinderfreunde weiterleiten!

Wondering why not to turn the idea into a permanent institution, I have asked my Austrian scout friends via facebook to celebrate a “Scout Scarf Day” this August 1 again.The many positive replies have now encouraged me to pursue the idea on international level.

Please therefore spread th information to all your scout friends and former scouts througout the world!

En el año 2007 con motivo del aniversario “100 años escultas”, los escultas Austriacos declararon el 1. de agosto como “dia del pañoleta” y pidieron todos …lo escultas activos y anteriores a llevar so pañoleta. Muchos (Ex-)escultas (sean famosos o no) siguieron la proclamación y asi llevaron la idea de los escultas obviamente al público.

Desafortunadamente eso permaneció una acción exquisita. Seguro que sería una buena idea repetir esa proclamación y celebrar el 1. agosto de cada año como “dia del pañoleta”.

Porfavor, cursar esa información a todos los amigos de los escultas.

No ano de 2007, quando dos 100 anos do Movimento Escoteiro, A Associação dos Escoteiros da Áustria declarou o dia 1 de Agosto, o “Dia Nacional do Lenço Escoteiro”, e pediu que os escoteiros ativos e antigos escoteiros usassem seus lenços em público. Muitas pessoas, incluindo pessoas de destaque no mundo dos negócios atenderam ao pedido, tornando visível o espírito escoteiro.
Pensando em por que não tornar esta ideia em uma data permanente, pedi a meus amigos escoteiros Austríacos através do Facebook a celebrarem novamente um “Dia do Lenço Escoteiro” neste dia 1 de agosto . As várias respostas positivas me encorajaram a propor a ideia em nível internacional.

Por favor espalhem esta informação para todos seus amigos escoteiros de hoje e de sempre, através do mundo.

  2. the scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the scout promise and for our Scout mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it….
