Today is Veterans Day, so I know a lot of scouts will be participating in flag ceremonies. The leader can be a member of the den preferred , a Den Chief, or an adult leader. Those in uniform do a hand salute. Everyone else places their hand on their heart.
Ceremonies, Traditions, and Celebrations | Girl Scouts River Valleys Volunteers
Traditions give Girl Scouts a sense of history—and inspire them to be the best they can be. Sharing traditions with millions of Girl Scouts—and the huge network of Girl Scout alums who came before them—helps remind girls they belong to a big, powerful sisterhood. The Court of Awards can be held anytime during the year, at any location, and as often as the troop wants. A Court of Awards ceremony can also be used as a closing ceremony for a troop project, or as a way to present recognitions individual girls have earned over a period of time. If your group includes girls from other countries, invite them to honor their flags too, and together conduct an international flag ceremony.
Ceremonies help Girl Scouts mark special events throughout the year, such as bridging to another level, earning a National Leadership Journey award, or getting a Girl Scout pin. Ceremonies can commemorate accomplishments or add something special to the beginning or end of a group's meeting. Girls can plan a ceremony around a theme, such as friendship or nature, and express themselves in words or song.
Flag ceremonies are often part of a larger ceremony or event. Some troops host a flag ceremony at every troop meeting. Others troops reserve ceremonies for big days like bridging or end of year celebrations.
