"scarf..."   (Act IV - Scene IV)

During the Battle of Ivry (1590), King Henry IV of France (1553–1610) refused to retreat even though he was greatly outnumbered by the enemy. He told his soldiers to follow his white scarf. In the play, the white scarf represents honor and bravery. While de Guiche throws it aside, Cyrano attempts to retrieve it.
