since 7th November 1950. All the different scouts and guide associations
merged together to form a unified organisation called Bharat Scouts and
Guides. Every year 7th November is celebrated as ‘Foundation Day’. It is
also being celebrated as the ‘Bharat Scouts and Guides Flag Day’ since
its golden jubilee in the year 2000.
