THE SCOUT SIGN © BSA, 1990
The Scout sign identifies you as a Scout anywhere in the world. Use it whenever you give the Scout Oath or Scout Law.

The three upraised fingers stand for the three parts of the Scout Oath. The thumb and little finger together stand for the bond between all Scouts.  

THE SCOUT SALUTE © BSA, 1990
The Scout salute signifies respect and courtesy. You use it to salute the flag of the United States of America. During some ceremonies, you may also salute your Webelos leaders or Boy Scout leaders.

To give the Scout salute, place the fingers of your right hand in position as for the Scout sign. Bring the hand smartly up to your head, palm sideways, until your forefinger touches the edge of your cap above the right eye or, if you are capless, your forehead above the right eye. When the salute is completed, snap your hand down quickly to your side.  

 

THE SCOUT HANDSHAKE© BSA, 1990
To give the Scout handshake, use your left hand instead of the right. Do not interlock your fingers. The Scout handshake is a token of friendship. That's why you use your left hand-the one nearest your heart.
