What are your GLO's COLORS, MASCOTS & SYMBOLS????
 
I thought this would be interesting; (to me at least) I know a lot of the basics about my other NPC sororities and IFC orgs, but I don't know much about the Locals who post here.
Thought this might be especially good during this recruitment time of year!

What are your traditions and symbols?


Since I'm asking all of you, I'll share some of ours:
Alpha Delta Pi was founded in 1851 at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia. Phi Mu sorority was founded shortly after us on the same campus in 1852.
Founders Day:
May 15th
Official Colors
Azure Blue and White are the official colors of Alpha Delta Pi. Blue is symbolic of friendship, the basic spirit upon which Alpha Delta Pi is founded. White symbolizes sincerity and truth. Alpha Delta Pi seeks sincerity and truthfulness in all its members.
Mascot
The lion is the mascot of Alpha Delta Pi. Our mascot is nicknamed "Alphie."
Official Flower
The woodland violet, which grows wild, is the official flower. Because it is unavailable for purchase, African violets are often used to symbolize the woodland violet.
Open Motto
"We live for each other," is the open motto of Alpha Delta Pi.

Hello,

My local and proud sorority Delta Rho Delta was established in the year of 1932 on the campus of Emory and Henry College located in southwest Virginia (near Radford and Virginia Tech). My sorority folded and in the year of 1988 we were refounded through the work of 8 wonderful sisters.

Our colors are black, gold, and white.

Flower - the yellow rose.

Symbol- the duck (this goes back to a brother fraternity that were connected to)

There was briefly a local here whose symbol was the cornucopia--to demonstrate diversity and also because of their motto, "By their fruits ye shall know them." Cool!
