Brand Centre

This is the central resource for all those producing Scouting communications and promoting Scouting's everyday adventure.

It provides tools and guidance on producing inspiring materials that will help us motivate and engage our wide variety of audiences.

It should help you produce bolder, more inspiring communications.

Scout and Guide joint branding – updated advice

We occasionally receive enquiries as to whether there is a joint Scout and Guide logo. To clarify - there is no official joint Guide and Scout logo. Historically there have been various designs bolting the two logos together; these were discontinued in 2012.

If you wish to use both logos (for example to show a jointly run event or camp) please place both logos next to each other following both organisation’s identity guidelines. This includes using the correct colours for both logos, the correct exclusion zones for both logos and, for local events, using the appropriate local logo of both organisations. Do not attempt to join or combine the logos and do not alter either logo in any way. Local logos for both organisations can be created on the relevant organisation’s print centres (Members of Scouting can log in at www.scouts.org.uk using their normal username and password and choose Print Centre from the My Tools menu). Please always ensure you have your relevant Commissioner’s permission to use any logos.
