Boy Scout Ceremonies
Dens, packs, patrols, and troops all need ceremonies to have a sense of tradition and community. Cub Scout ceremonies can be especially fun, trying different ways to do an opening, closing, or flag ceremony. Use this page to find new ways to make your meetings interesting and memorable by choosing appropriate ones for each level of scouting and each stepping stone in the boy scout trail.
A cub scout ceremony should be simpler and more exciting than one for boy scouts which can tend more toward solemn and meaningful. Whether it is a tiger cub induction, meeting opening or closing, Webelos bridging, or bobcat pin, there are fun special ways to make the event memorable to the boys. For every rank in scouts - tiger, bobcat, wolf, bear, webelos, scout, tenderfoot, 2nd class, 1st class, star, life, and eagle scout - you can use unique ceremonies that will mark the occasion.

The Flag is considered to be a living symbol representing a living country. When one of your loved ones die and is cremated do you first cut them up? Why would you cut up the living symbol of your country before cremating it?
"The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
A ceremony that includes dividing a flag with reasoning falls into that 'dignified way' as prescribed.
The Military often cuts the flag for their ceremonies.
Our nation flag is one to not only respected but reveered. If you have not evern taken part on been present in a TRUE retirement ceremony you need to DO IT and re attach your sole to this country.
