The Solomon Islands branch of The Scout Association (Solomons Pijin: Skaut Belong Solomone), founded in 1928, is a branch of the United Kingdom Scout Association for historical reasons and the fact that the number of Scouts in the Solomon Islands is rather small. As of 2007, the branch is working towards recognition as a National Scout Organisation by the World Organization of the Scout Movement.[1] Chief Scout of the branch is the Governor General, Nathaniel Waena.[2]

Scouts from the Solomon Islands participated in the 19th World Jamboree in Chile in 1998.

Membership badge, older variant

The membership badge of the Solomon Islands branch of The Scout Association features the national flag. The older variant shows a palm tree, a symbol in use since the Solomon Islands was a colonial branch of British Scouting.
