This opening has been adopted for the use of 10 cubs. It can easily be fitted to any number. (The language may be to difficult for all but the best readers)

CUB #1: I am not the flag; not at all, I am but its shadow. I am whatever you make me; nothing more. I am your belief in yourself, your dream of what a people may become. I live a changing life, a life of moods and passions, of heartbreaks and tired muscles.

CUB #2: Sometimes I am strong with pride, when men do a days honest work. Sometimes I droop, when purpose has gone from me, and cynically I play the coward.

CUB #3: Sometimes I am loud, garish, and full of that ego that blasts judgement. But always I am all you hope to be and have the courage to try for.

CUB #4: I am struggle and panic, and ennobling hope. I am the day's work of the weakest man, and the largest dream of the most daring.

CUB #5: I am the Constitution and the courts, statutes and the statute makers, soldier, cook, counselor and clerk.

CUB #6: I am the battle of yesterday and the mistake of tomorrow. I am the mystery of the men who do without knowing why. I am the clutch of an idea and the reasoned purpose of resolution. I am no more than you believe me to be, and I am all that you believe I can be.

CUB #7: I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a symbol, of yourself, the pictured suggestion of that big thing which makes this nation. My stars and stripes are your dreams and your labors. They are bright with cheer, brilliant with courage firm with faith, because you have made them so out of your hearts. For you are the makers of the flag and it is well that you glory in the making.

The other Cubs are used to present National and Pack colors and to hold the felt board. A white felt boars is used to build the flag. A blue field with Stars and red strips are place with each Cubs part.
