Girl Scout Flag Ceremony

Happy Fourth! Celebrate this independence day with a Girl Scout Flag Ceremony. 

A flag ceremony honors the American flag as the symbol of our country and all the hopes, dreams, and people it represents. If your group includes girls from other countries, they can honor their flags, too, and conduct an international flag ceremony. Flag ceremonies may be used for: Flag ceremonies may take place in meeting rooms, outdoor settings, large auditoriums, onstage, or even on horseback. The American flag is carried by a color guard for protection during a flag ceremony. All flag ceremonies share one thing—respect for the flag.

For more information about flag ceremonies and how to conduct them, see The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.
