The red stripe on the hoist serves as the base for adding the name of the Indonesian scout's units. So, when the flag is assigned to a particular unit, there will be the name/number of the unit on the red vertical stripe.
. The emblem on the center of the flag is a coconut seed. It represents the
growing spirit, physical toughness, adaptability, and high aspiration of the
scout member. So far, there's no explanation of the meaning of the two horizontal
red stripes on the flag.

The coconut seed emblem was adopted on 31 January 1972 but I am not certain when the flag was adopted. However, this document has the specifications for the flag and what sizes are needed. The sizes are as follows:

Area : 150 cm X 225 cm
