The White Cross

A white cross of eight-pointed Maltese design with Latin proportions (taller than wide). Chains connect the horizontal arms to the top arm. Crossed keys, an eagle's head, a scroll, clasped hands and seven stars representing our seven founders are depicted on the arms. The Greek letters Sigma and Chi appear in the a black oval at the center.


The Crest

The crest is an unadorned white cross on a blue shield. An eagle's head holding keys in its beak is depicted above the shield. A scroll below the shield bears a Latin phrase which is the Fraternity's public motto: "in hoc signo vinces" which means "In this sign (the white cross) you will conquer."
