The arms were officially granted on March 10, 1969.
The shield is based on the arms of Robert Stephenson Smyth Baron Baden-Powell , the "Chief Scout of the World", whose book Scouting for Boys was first published on this day in 1908. The supporters, "a Scout in the uniform of the present" and "a Scout in the uniform of the past", stand on a compartment representing Brownsea Island, where Baden-Powell held the first ever Scout camp in the summer of 1907. The crest is the emblem of Scouting, the fleur-de-lys. Its three lobes represent the three parts of the Scout promise, and the five-pointed stars surmounting it represent the ten Scout laws.
