The Zhongguo shaonian xianfeng dui or China Young Pioneers movement, founded on 13 October 1949, was a youth organisation for children aged between six and fourteen. The red scarf was the only item of uniform worn; members are commonly referred to as honglingjin, or Red Scarves. The organisation's constitution states that the scarf symbolises the blood sacrificed by martyrs of the revolution, and should therefore be worn with pride.
