This week's Gallery is colour. When I read it I heard "colour party halt" being shouted on Remembrance parade. But our flags do come out more than once a year. They are an important part of the symbolism of who we are.
There are standards as well as flags that come out on special occasions such as award ceremonies.
I like to have flags up at camp, even if it is rather informal and probably too festival style for Guiding proper.
But they make a good weather barometer:
Flying well - check your tent pegs
Stuck to the pole - cooking in the rain
Frozen Solid - just damned cold!
A Guides Own time - a time for personal reflection, as well as a time to give thanks for all our blessings.
