I have heard of this mystical cat. I was watching videos on youtube with my lil, who is dating a Sinfonian. There was a guy wearing a PMA jacket and on the back was the face of a black cat and below it said MYSTIC CAT. I asked her what "Mystic Cat" was and she said "I don't know. I've asked my boyfriend about it and he gets really mad. I think it's some big secret Phi Mu Alpha thing."

heh.

Flower: Yellow rose

Mascot: None set by international, although we have a stuffed teddy bear named Kix that makes his way around the country visiting different conventions

Symbols: Torch and Strawberry

Philanthropy: Breast cancer research is our biggest goal but we have tons of other things that we do in our communities
Well said sis!! Adding my 31 cents.

I'm a pearl girl myself. Although we don't have an official mascot I know bumblebees and teddy bears are pretty common. Also, I met a few sisters that claim the "grand phi" as an unofficial symbol because it's in our badge.
