Ranks in Polish Scouting

Ranks in Polish Scouting

The general rank insignia system of the Polish Scouting movement is common for most Scouting organizations in Poland, including the two most numerous; however, much is left to the traditions of specific groups. Some of them do not grant some of the ranks to its members, while others name them differently.

Although Polish Scouting is by and large militarized in traditions and outfit, the very look of the insignia may differ from group to group. Some of them do not use shoulder straps at all, while others recently introduced an chevron system.
