Fly the Flag

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


As Olympic nations proudly display their flags and the athletes representing them, get your Cubs to discover what they have in common as they work together to create their own flag.


• Large sheets of paper or sheeting
• Pens/fabric crayons
• Pole/cane
• String
• Scissor


1. Explain that during the opening ceremonies of the Olympic and Paralympic Games each participating country carries a flag that shows the country that their athletes will represent.
2. Ask pairs/small teams to chat about things they have in common and do together as friends.
3. They then design a flag to represent these and tie it to the pole/cane.
4. Each pair/team then parades behind their flag, forms a circle and shows their flag to the others.
