Congratulations to 14 year old Andrea Ramsay of the Adiero Scout Troop at Randpark Ridge in Randburg, Gauteng who has won herself a purple I. Scout Hoodie! Andrea’s design for the 23WSJ South African Contingent badge has been selected out of many entries to be the badge that all participants will be wearing!
When asked how she came about the idea for the logo she replied: “We actually sat down as a family when the badge competition opened, and started thinking of typical Japanese icons. We came across the fish and decided to do one fish with the SA flag and one with the red sun of the Japanese flag. We also heard that the Japanese will pay huge sums of money for Koi with the red dot on their head. We thought the way the fish were swimming was just like the Ying Yang symbol.”
