I, too, never noticed the badge on the Theta COA...how cool!

Here is Delta Gamma's:

Here's Kappa Delta's COA. It doesn't conform to heraldic rules; it's more of a design suited for our ritual. There are interesting things about it that I could point out, but then I'd have to kill you.



I'll have to scan some photos of the original COA and post them. It's pretty funny.


Oh, I forgot to mention that the lettering in the banner is Ta Kala Diokomen which means "let us strive for that which is honorable, beautiful and highest".

This is going to be a verrrrry interesting thread. sotto voce: are you KDs a little bloodthirsty? I'm thinking about that dagger on your badge

I have always liked that open motto. I also like TriDelta's motto, and lemme see... there's another one... it'll come to me.

Oh yes! Never cross a KD lady. We're the only NPC with a deadly weapon as our symbol.

Here is Delta Gamma's:
I've been looking for Delta Nu's crest from Legally Blonde to post next to ours, but I can't seem to find it easily. They show it on Elle's paddle in the opening sequence, and it's pretty much the same although Bruiser's head is in place of the rose

Yay on responses!

This.

Here's a question Lucy. I see this coat of arms a lot (being married to a Kappa). Sometimes I see both the area above the chevron (the ^-shape) darker blue while the base (below the chevron) is light blue, and the fluer-de-lis are gold, like this:



Other times it's like the image you posted -- both darker blue and light blue fluer-de-lis. Any info on the differences.

I'll try to post about Phi Mu Alpha later today.

Gamma Phi Beta Coat of Arms-- I love this image! I think the 3-d is beautiful.

I found a Delta Gamma web page that discusses it that has a shot (from sort of an angle) of the Delta Nu crest next to Delta Gamma, can't see the top that well and in each branch of the "T" there are three stars rather than one.

Here's our Coat of Arms. I think it's gorgeous. It has a lot of meaning behind it.

My Gamma Sig sister above posted that coat of arms, which I think is really representative of our ideals.

MysticCat, you in Big Trouble now. New obsession kindled: COA for fraternities and sororities. Of course nothing will replace the quest for opal badges, but this is definitely a new interest.

@Leslie Anne, if not a dagger, then poison? I spy a skull & crossbones on the KD COA. Man, you guys do not mess around!

I might start an excel sheet or something of the sort that lists the symbols that are shared (eg flowers/stars/hands clasped/griffons etc). Note the use of MIGHT.

Yeah, I've been saying that "might" for months now.

Good sleuthing Randy!

Here they are side by side:
"Delta Nu" and Delta Gamma



Pretty similar!

I have a pewter COA lavalier (it has letters on the reverse side) that I wear every day. It's generally only other Greeks who notice it and/or know what it is.

You could make a google excel document and then "share" the editing privileges...then everyone could add their own symbols to the tally.
