The Cub Scout sign is made with the right arm held high and straight up above the shoulder, with the index and middle fingers forming a V. The other fingers are held down by the thumb. It's the sign of Cub Scouts all over the world.
The two extended fingers represent the ears of an alert wolf, reminding boys to be attentive. Leaders and boys should give the Cub Scout sign when saying the Scout Oath or Scout Law. The sign is also used in the Living Circle and other ceremonies.
When a leader raises the sign, the boys should become quiet and make the sign themselves - and activities cease until each boy has responded appropriately.
