I would like to contribute the flag of the German (Catholic) St. George
Scouts (Deutsche Pfadfinderschaft St. Georg) to FOTW.
DPSG has approx. 100,000 members. It was founded in 1929, prohibited by Hitler in 1938, and newly founded in 1946.
St. George's flag is combined with a blue symbol that is a merger of the Christian cross with a fleur-de-lys which I think is a quite interesting combination of two symbols.

It's been pointed out here that the symbol is a combination of the Scouting
fleur-de-lys with this group's distinctive hat (formerly worn by US Scouts
too, I think). The overall impression is a cross.

I was a member of German St. George Scouts and in our tribe, we considered
the symbol as fleur-de-lys with scout hat. But I do not have an official
written description of the symbol. ;-)
