PATRIARCHAL COUNCIL FOR INTERNATIONAL SCOUTS AND GUIDES


INSIGNE ARGENTEUM SANCTI GEORGII
PRO CHRISTO ET PATRIA

The Insigne Argenteum Sancti Georgii (Silver Saint George Medal/Award for Christ and Country) is for adult leaders in Scouting programs, and it is intended to be given to those adults who give exceptional service to both scouting and the Faith on a regional or national level.

There is not a set list of requirements to complete for this award as there is for the youth awards. Rather, the merit of each nomination is carefully considered based on a specific meritorious act or the totality of service to God, Scouting, and the nation. The award (see example on left) is worn on a neck ribbon. Some Scouting organizations also have generic badges that may be worn to represent receipt of an adult religious emblem.

The Silver Saint George medal may be given to those of other branches of the Christian Faith, particularly those of Catholic tradition, as well as to those not in Boy Scouting who demonstrate significant leadership and service to God and country on a national level.

The award is given only by approval of the Patriarchal Council for International Scouts and Guides. Application may not be made for the award. Rather, nominations are made a committee selected for the purpose.
