One of the most popular posts on my site it the Simple Indoor Opening Ceremony. This is a very basic ceremony to open your den, pack, or other meeting. But what to do at the end? A closing flag ceremony of course!
Simple Closing Flag Ceremony for Cub Scouts
The leader can be a member of the den (preferred), a Den Chief, or an adult leader.
Leader: “Color Guard, Advance”
The Color Guard goes to the front of the room and stands next to the flags, with the same number at each flag.
Leader: “Color Guard, Retrieve the Colors. Scout Salute”
The Color Guard removes the flags from their stands and proceeds out of the room double-file as shown in the diagram. Those in uniform do a hand salute. Everyone else places their hand on their heart.
Leader: “TWO. Color Guard dismissed.”
Everyone stops saluting.
- The US flag should always be on the right side of the procession and should never be behind the other flags.
- It is appropriate to salute any time the US flag passes and until it is out of sight.
