In the bottom left corner is the emblem of the National Scout Organization of Thailand, a fleur-de-lis with two stars and a tiger head over a banner with the Thai scout motto sia chihp yah sia sat (เสียชีพอย่าเสียสัตย์), which freely translates as ‘Death before Dishonesty’, and encircled by a yellow border with the text National Scout Organization of Thailand in both English and Thai, the latter being Kha-na Look Seua Haeng Chaht (คณะลูกเสือแห่งชาติ). Underneath the emblem of the National Scout Organization of Thailand is the text 75th Anniversary of World Scouting, also in both English and Thai.
