The 75th anniversary of the Girl Scouts became the subject of a commemorative stamp issued on March 12, 1987, in Washington, DC. The design features fourteen Girl Scout badges on a green background, the color of the sash on which they are worn.    Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts in Savannah, Georgia, in 1912, having borrowed the concept from the Girl Guides movement in England.
