Flag of Scouts de France - Image by Armando Azua & António Martins, 6 April 2006
Scouts de France use three different flags (all similar, different shapes), but I do not know when they use each one. The variants are square (1:1), rectangular (2:3) and triangular.
The cross and shape of the flag comes from the old French army flags
from the 18th century that would always be square and have a white
cross in the middle.
The red Jerusalem Cross with the fleur-de-lis is the symbol of Scouts de France designed by Father Jacques Sevin, co-founder of scouting in France.
The green colour is the colour of the scout branch. There used to be the same in red for the rovers.
