Unit 11

Derbyshire Deer

Derbyshire Deer. Interesting information about deer and maybe why we gravitated towards this design as our unit identity…

  • Deer are iconic creatures of Derbyshire. We have expanding populations of Red, Roe, Muntjac and Fallow in our county.  
  • Deer symbolism and meanings include intuition, grace, gentleness, tranquillity, devotion, and good luck. 
  • A deer herd’s mentality is to make sure that no one is left behind while they are on the move; an essential element of our journey to Korea. 
  • The deer is one of 10-12 symbols known together in Korea as ‘Ship-jangsaeng’, which are used to represent immortality or long life.
  • Korean hanji (traditional paper) containing deer imaginary is a visual reminder to be harmonious, gentle, and mindful of each other, just as the animal is. 

Unit 11 badges are available to purchase from Emily at emily.wiggins@derbyshirescouts.org
