Solve the Mystery
Your current location is: Flagpole
The flagpole is about 3m high, with three guy ropes attached to large wooden tent pegs securing it to the ground. Flying at the top is the World Guiding flag. There is a scroll attached to the bottom of the flag.
You carefully untie the knot holding up the flag and lower the flag making sure it doesn’t touch the ground. You remove the scroll, then raise the flag again tying it securely.
When you untie the scroll, you find the following message.
You will need these colours later!
If you need help you can download a flag sheet here.
If you haven’t already, why not design and fly a flag for your camp? If you have one, take a photo of it.
About Guide Camp
When we are on site we hoist the flag in the morning before Guides Own and inspection, and then take it down at sunset. We usually fly the World Guiding flag or the Union flag, but sometimes we fly a Nottinghamshire flag, or a special flag relating to the theme of the camp.
