Why this toolkit?

These marketing materials were developed in line with WOSM's and SCOUTS South Africa's Marketing and Branding policies for you as members, Groups, Districts, Regions and Scout event organisers to use to promote Scouting in your communities. The templates provide an opportunity for us to use a unified brand and to enhance our visibility!

When developing a promotional brand for SCOUTS South Africa (SSA), the advertising agency HAVAS jumped on board to assist probono in developing a look and feel that would represent the outdoor, adventurous and fun nature of Scouting. Skills development and advancement are represented through the badges our members earn, therefore they became an integral part of this brand that visually represents the adventurous essence of our Movement. This brand is to be used for the promotion of SA Scouting and activities.

The corporate SSA brand - purple and white & rope - is only to be used by the National and Regional teams for official communication, Warrants, Awards, SSA merchandise, etc. Exception to this has been provided for signage and tear drop banners. If your Group wants to produce promotional materials in the corporate brand email prior to doing so.

The World Scout Emblem (fleur-de-lis) and the SCOUTS South Africa brand are registered trademarks owned by World Scouting. Therefore, these materials may only be used -in line with the brand directives - for the promotion of Scouting and not for any commercial gain. If you would make amendments to these materials please use due diligence to ensure the correct visual representation of our brand, which in turn ensures the integrity of our brand identity.

Some of the documents are large and will take some time to download. These high-res files enable you to print high quality materials, which reinforce the quality programmes we have in Scouting.
