The anchor is the most widely recognized symbol of Delta Gamma Fraternity


The original badge of our Founders was the letter "H." This symbolized hope, which was our Founders' watchword.


Only initiated members wear the official badge of the Fraternity. In 1877, the "H" badge changed to an anchor, which is the traditional symbol for hope.


Women who are pledged to join, but who are not yet initiated, wear the new member pin. The white shield has the Greek letters Pi Alpha inscribed on it. The shield suggests the Fraternity badge and is exchanged for the badge upon Initiation.


The Fraternity flower is the cream-colored rose. The Fraternity colors are bronze, pink and blue.


The meaning of the crest is only known to its initiated members. The colors of the crest are cream for the rose at the apex of the crest; gold for the three, five-pointed stars on the shield, the rope around the shield and outline of the scroll ribbon; burnt maize for the flanking ornaments of the rose and the Greek letters, Tau Delta Eta; blue for the lower two-thirds of the shield; green for the upper third and center section of the shield and the leaves of the rose; and rose for the Greek letters Delta Gamma.
