Our Troop Crest

At our first meeting we let the girls participate in an official vote.  We talked to them about the importance of voting and how it is an honor to be able to vote.   We explained that voting is a private act and should not be influenced by others.  on the ballot were four crests; bluebird, lei, arrow, and waterfall.  The vote was close and three could have been voted in with just one additional vote.  Bluebirds won and your girls came home with them from the second meeting.

Here is what GSA has to say about our crest,”The troop crest is chosen by a Girl Scout troop. The crests are worn by Girl Scout Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors. Center the troop crest directly under the council identification strip. Throughout its history, Girl Scouts has assigned no specific meaning to troop crests. The items used in troop crests, such as flowers and other natural elements, often have various meanings that have come to be associated with them by cultures around the world. Some of these elements carry multiple meanings, and sometimes their symbolism has changed and evolved through the ages. Some of these meanings are offered in the description of each crest, which may be of interest to girls and their adult volunteers.
Bluebird – Bluebirds, known for their bright color and cheerful song stand for happiness and good fortune.”
