Coat of Arms/Crest

Coat of Arms

The coat of arms was adopted in 1927 and modified in 1954. The colors are blue, silver, red and yellow. The Coat of Arms may be depicted in one color, provided that the colors are symbolized by lines and dots according to heraldic practice. Blue of the approximate hue of the badge, silver or black are considered appropriate for single-color use. The symbolism of the coat of arms is explained in the Ritual.

The original coat of arms, as adopted in 1925, featured a handshake, a lamp of knowledge, the founding date and a chain of five links symbolizing the number of chapters at the time of the first convention.
Member Badge

Membership Badge

The badge is the most prominent symbol of membership. Adopted in 1927, it consists of a shield with four points, which may have a gold or pearl border and may be further embellished with sapphires or rubies. The standard badge (pictured to the left) is furnished upon payment of the initiation fee to the Fraternity. Jewel-encrusted badges may be ordered through the Fraternity headquarters. Proof of membership is required.
Associate Pin

Associate Pin

The associate pin, which is worn by associate members of the Fraternity until initiation, is a silver and blue shield. The symbolism of the associate pin is explained in the Ritual. Associate pins may be purchased through the Headquarters office.

The Flag of Sigma Tau Gamma

The flag of Sigma Tau Gamma is colored with white and azure. The diagonal line goes from the bottom left to the top right. The top left section is colored azure, while the bottom right section is white. Within the top left section the 18 links are represented. In the bottom right section are the Greek letters of Sigma Tau Gamma.
The White Rose

The Fraternity's flower is the white rose. Its meaning is explained in the Ritual.

Each chapter traditionally holds an annual White Rose banquet and dance. The chapter's sweetheart, known as the White Rose Sweetheart, is crowned at the dance and serves as the chapter's official hostess throughout the year.

Each chapter is encouraged to nominate its sweetheart for the title of "Rose of Sigma Tau," who is selected from among all other chapter sweethearts. The "Rose of Sigma Tau" is the Fraternity's guest at the national meeting and is crowned at the annual Awards Banquet.
