Imaginary and Symbology
In the 1st section, the imagery revolves around the famous story of "The Jungle Book" author Rudyard Kipling. Unlike other sections, the experience is based, in the Cub Law. In the LGS Cubs are called Wëllefcher, or simpy Wëllef.
Symbols are images that transport us to another world, when we look at them we can see other things that are hidden in them. The pack symbols are images that represent to us the world of the jungle and the cubs and, therefore, are images that identify us and with which we identify. The Pack is composed of children from 7 to 11 years. The Cubs are organised in small teams 4 to 8 people and their patron is St.. Francis of Assisi.
it's the Meeting shout of the Wolves. It is the representation of all that is important in Pack, from the wolves and their characteristics through the characters of The Jungle Book, until the promise of Cubscout. It is made whenever there are important events and wants to thank the presence of someone.
It is the symbol of light, heat, of God and joy.
It is a pole tip which has a wolf's head on top. The Totem Pole of a Pack should tell the history of the Pack, that is,, she must have markings identifying the Cubs and their heads as well as the activities of Pack.

The Cubs use as imaginary history of Maugli , a boy that wolves welcomed and created, as described in the 'Jungle Book', written over a hundred years by an English gentleman named Rudyard Kipling. Maugli was a boy who lived with his wolf brothers and was helped by the head of the Pack - Akeela - and other animals: a black panther called Bagheera, a wise bear named Baloo, etc. In the jungle, Maugli had many adventures and had fun and learned a lot! The Patron of Lobitos is the St. Francis of Assisi, a saint close friend of the poor and animals. With him, the Cubs learn to be better and to respect all nature!
