It's been around for 100 years… Scouts' honour. To this day, thousands of Canadian youth follow the basic Scouting principles established in 1907 - and on July 25, Canada Post will issue a commemorative stamp to celebrate this milestone.

The foreground of the stamp features a tree-like structure which designer Matthias Reinecke explains has multiple layers in meaning. It represents the growth of Scouts as an organization and also reflects teamwork, which is an integral part of Scouting.

The background features the logo of the organization along with photos depicting canoeing, cycling, camping and campfire-related activities; all four are typical Scouting activities.
