Insignia of Hereditary Societies
   
   
   
 

Society Decorations

 

The following are the standard insignia for a number of hereditary societies. Because of the difficulty in restructuring the appearance of the page for insertions, the insignia are reordered according to precedence only periodically.  New insignia are included toward the bottom of the page, and are inserted correctly later.

The webmaster welcomes high resolution photographs (with any background) of society insignia not yet included here.  Please feel free to send these via email as an attachment to the webmaster.
