Scott Motto - Be Prepared

In English, this motto is most commonly Be Prepared, and it is no coincidence[1] that this motto can be shortened to B. P. and Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the movement, used to shorten his surname into B.-P.

In the third part of Scouting for Boys Robert Baden-Powell explains the meaning of the phrase:

The Scout Motto is: BE PREPARED which means you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your DUTY.

•Be Prepared in Mind by having disciplined yourself to be obedient to every order, and also by having thought out beforehand any accident or situation that might occur, so that you know the right thing to do at the right moment, and are willing to do it.
•Be Prepared in Body by making yourself strong and active and able to do the right thing at the right moment, and do it.[2]
"To do the right thing at the right moment"

Sign
Use the 'Promise hand' Beaver Activity.

Handshake
The left-handed Scout handshake is a formal way of greeting other Scouts of both genders used by members of Scout and Guide organizations around the world when greeting other Scouts. The handshake is made with the hand nearest the heart and is offered as a token of friendship.
