The Scouts de France use three different flags (all similar, different shapes),
but I do not knowwhen they use each one. The variants are square (1:1), rectangular
(2:3) and triangular. I am almost sure it is a variation of the Saint George
Cross (in green and white) because St. George is the patron of scouting, the red Jerusalem Cross with the fleur de lys is the symbol of Scouts de France designed by P. Jaques Sevin co-founder of scouting in France.
