Coat of Arms:

A flaming lamp and open book representing wisdom, scholarship and knowledge; along with a band of gold and three Tudor roses, symbolizing the Society's ideals of friendship, loyalty, and helpfulness; are displayed on a red shield, a color chosen for courage. The prominent cup celebrates knowledge. The glancing laurel sprays symbolize our tradition of achievement.


Key Pin

The key pin is the emblem of membership in Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. The golden ellipse exemplifies the work of each member for the good of all; the laurel leaves symbolize the distinction, which those who wear the key have achieved; and the cup represents knowledge. Members are to wear the key pin in a vertical position over their heart.
