Member Countries of the World Organization of the Scout Movement

National Scout Organizations

Over 150 National Scout Organizations are members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement.

Only one National Scout Organization can be recognized in a country. In some countries the National Scout Organization is a federation composed of more than one Scout association. The badges below represent the individual Scout associations in each member country of the World Organization as currently available. Most of the illustrations are from the poster "World Scouting-Scoutisme Mondial" published by the World Organization in 2000. Others are based on more recent graphics available from both National and local Scouting sites on the World Wide Web . A number of illustrations were not available. Several are reproduced in a drawing or artist’s rendition. If you have more up-to-date designs or artwork, please contact me and I will be happy to add them to these pages.  Badges are arranged alphabetically by country. Over 170 associations are represented. An index follows.

Thanks to Mark Clayton of the World Scout Bureau for his guidance in assembling this material. The materials from "World Scouting-Scoutisme Mondial" are copyright by the World Scout Bureau, Geneva, Switzerland, 2000.
