The Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity has available certain insignia for use by its members. All badge designs are patented and the Greek-letter combination carries a trademark. The sole rights for use of the articles bearing Phi Kappa Tau symbols is represented by a Norman shield of gold divided into two sections. Between the upper section and the base is a red chevron bearing three Phi Kappa Tau stars. The Fraternity’s motto is placed below the shield on a scroll.
The Associate Badge is a Norman shield edged in white enamel with a field of gold bearing a raised Phi Kappa Tau star. This badge is worn on a shirt pocket or about an inch above the heart on a sweater. It is not worn on a lapel. (The only thing worn on a lapel is a recognition pin. All Associate and Membership Badges are worn over the heart). It is never worn on a t-shirt or any similar undergarment.
The Member Badge is an irregular octagon having the major axis from top to bottom. The center is black enamel bearing a star and the character letters for Phi, Kappa and Tau in gold. The black center is surrounded by a band of gold. The only combination of jewels permitted is a diamond or zircon set in the star and sixteen pearls set in the outer band of gold. The badge is worn in the perpendicular position over the heart on a vest, shirt or sweater. It is not to be worn on a t-shirt or any undergarment or on the lapel of a jacket.
