Regalia, Peerage and Award Identification

Regalia, Peerage and Award Identification

The information in the Tables 1 – 6 has been distilled from SCA Lochac Corpora, Lochac Kingdom Law, SCA Corpora, the Lochac Book of Ceremonies, historical notes and current information as of December 2006. See also Canon Lore.

Please note this is NOT a definitive list of all regalia, awards badges or tokens, only of the items that the Keeper of the Regalia is required to maintain. Orders such as the Lochac Company of Archers, or Order of the White Scarf and awards such as the Grant of Arms and Award of Arms have their own badges, tokens and/or scrolls which come under the care and maintenance of other officers.

The tokens and badges shown here are the most recent incarnation of each award. The graphic elements of each token generally do not change. However, the precise size, materials etc of the token may vary over time. As an example, two variants of the medallion worn by members of the Order of the Pelican are shown. They contain the same elements of the pelican piercing her breast, but very different styles.

Links to the relevant sections where total listings, relevant offices, and explicit and useful sites have been provided below each table.

Note: if you are able to supply an image with a black background of any of the items not shown, please contact the Keeper of the Regalia. Thank you!
