Silent Flag Ceremony
This Ceremony is meant for Cub Scouts.
At least 5 scouts.
Flashlight for each Scout in ceremony
Before you begin, turn off all lights.
Scouts in ceremony should be seated around flag pole, sitting on the ground.
Each Scout should have a flashlight - if less than 9 scouts, then some have two flashlights and two lines. They will turn on their flashlight, pointing it at the flag immediately before they recite their part of the ceremony. They should keep their light on after they speak.
Leader: Tonight you will hear the words of the Pledge to our country’s flag. Reflect on the words in your heart as you hear them. Please rise and join us in saluting our flag. Place your right hand over your heart; Scouts in uniform should render the proper salute. Please listen quietly.
