I had the opportunity to volunteer for the Scouts and design the badge on behalf of Unit 28. They are a UK Scout contingent attending the World Jamboree in South Korea with an expected turnout of 40,000 Scouts worldwide!
The Unit is based in London and West London. The Explorers Scouts have been working on the idea for months putting together a character that represents their home. The final design combines several things representing London, turning it into a character showcasing the Explorer's identity.

The character has a body of the London Underground logo, an easy way to showcase London as it's one of the best ways to get around London. The Crocs demanded by our young people represent the current style and fashion choices of the Explorers Scouts. The Smart little pigeon fits well because London alone contains more than a million pigeons. The leaves represent the sustainability push for this coming Jamboree. Lastly, purple ties in nicely with this year's jamboree because it's "a cool fun colour".
