"It is very important for all scouts in Lithuania and abroad that the postage stamp on the occasion of the centenary of the Scout Movement was issued. This is an opportunity not only for scouts and collectors to acquire a postage stamp, but also for the public to become more familiar with the movement of scouts, its meaning and activities” - said Ieva Brogienė, a Lithuanian scout director.
Lithuanian scout is a social, voluntary, non-political organization. It is open to all people of Lithuania irrespective of their race, nationality, religion, gender or social status. Lithuanian scouts seek to educate young people, to help them express their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, responsible citizens and members of their local, national and international community.
The Lithuanian Scout movement began in Vilnius in 1918. For a century, thousands of young Lithuanians in Australia, Europe, North America and South America have participated in various scouting programs. This scouting tradition continues today, encouraging principled citizenship and leadership skills in local communities and within Lithuanian organizations.
