The NPC sorority Sigma Delta Tau uses the yellow tea rose. Alpha Sigma Tau (NPC sorority), Alpha Kappa Lambda and Kappa Delta Phi (both NIC fraternities) all use the yellow rose, although I don't think any of them specify the tea rose.

According to ariesrising's site, Phi Kappa Sigma uses the yellow crysanthemum. Her website is a great resource for anybody who wants to know more about other organizations:

I used to always get Kappa Sigma and Sigma Kappa mixed up. I know that Tri- Sigma share the same flower with Sigma Kappa. I also know that a lot of GLO have the pearl as a jewel... to think of few Delta Sigma Theta, I think DZ, Sigma Kappa and Tri- Sigma.... I may have some wrong names but yall get my drift.

Did anyone mention that ADPi and Phi Mu were both founded at Wesleyan College in Macon, GA? Chi Omega shares the pearl with a lot of other orgs. And the owl with KKG, but I don't think that there are many other similarities with other orgs. Somebody else uses the white carnation don't they? Hmmmmm

Pi Phi and KKG are Monmouth Duo, ZTA, ASA, KD and SSS are the Farmville Four, Phi Mu and ADPi have the Macon, GA thing going on.

Loads of "Triads" in the men's groups, etc. etc. etc.

Alpha Sigma Tau has the yellow rose, but it's not specified as a "yellow tea rose", just yellow rose. We also share the pearl with a bakazillion other groups. I guess pearls were considered very classy or very popular back in those days, who knows??

What about our colors--emerald green and gold? Does any other org have emerald green and gold together?

I know our badge is similar to others in that it is a "shield type" badge (as opposed to a monogram type or symbol type), but I think ours has a unique shape. All other "shield type" badges are a recognizable shape (i.e. ASA has the concave square, SigEp has the heart, SK is the triangle, SSS is the triangle too, isn't it?). Does anyone else share a similar type (oddly shaped) badge with AST?

SDT was also founded at Cornell, but in 1917. I met a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha wearing a Cornell Alpha Phi Alpha shirt and I got really excited. :-)

My sorority Epsilon Sigma Phi and Omega Phi Beta have the same flower: sunflower

We share similar colors with Alpha Epsilon Phi and Kappa Delta: Green and White (our is Forest Green and Ivory)

We have common letters with Sigma Phi Epsilon

Are there any GLOs (local, regional or National) out there who have a tiger as a mascot, whose philanthropy deal with children and/or cancer or has diamonds or emeralds as their gemstones. Just wondering!

Sigma Alpha uses green and gold (emerald and maize). They also use the yellow chrysanthemum. Someone earlier had asked about a chrysanthemum. Alpha Gamma Rho uses green and gold too.

As far as "oddly shaped" badges go, I think that Phi Mu's might qualify. It is very pretty and reminds me of hearts.

Two greek orgs?

I have seen that many GC users list 2 or more greek orgs. I was wondering why, perhaps they are community service or honor societies?

I've been a member of a greek org for a year, and I'm planning on joinging a psychology honor society, so I would then have two different letters, that's why I was asking.

Of course my co-ed frat letters come first!!

AOII shares the Jacquesminot Rose with Phi Kappa Psi.
The color Cardinal with with Chi Omega.
Founded at Barnard College like Alpha Epsilon Phi.


Interesting. I didn't know that!

I am a member of a social sorority, a co-ed honors fraternity and a psych honor society. So it's possible!
