The Scarf

MainThe NSCDA in Georgia is pleased to present this beautiful, unique National Scarf to all members of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America created by the internationally acclaimed designer, Marisol Deluna. Your new scarf features widely researched symbols, Pantone colors, and other authentic details that convey the rich history and symbolism of our National Society.

At the center of the scarf you will find the spectacularly positioned majestic eagle, chosen in 1782 for its long life and great strength by the Second Continental Congress, as the emblem of the United States of America.  Above the eagle are three stars that are unmistakable symbols of American patriotism. These stars also represent the National Projects in which our members participate: Patriotic Service, Historical Activities, and Museum Properties. Under the eagle is the date of the founding of The National Society as a reminder of its longevity and continued importance in today’s world.

Each corner of the scarf features the Seal of The National Society.  Within the Seal lies a shield with quadrants representing the medieval coats-of-arms of the royal families of France, Sweden, Holland, and England (clockwise from top right).  Two of the important heraldic symbols represented are the fleur-de-lis, the beautiful yellow iris that grew wild from June to September across Europe in medieval times, as well as the lion, the king of beasts, representing bravery, valor, strength, and royalty. The lions are either passant (walking) or rampant (standing.)

Centered on the sides of the scarf you will see the Badge of The National Society available to its members to wear.  It consists of a disc with a center figure of a Dame. Above the Dame the eagle appears again indicating the strength of our membership.  Surrounding the Dame are twenty gold rays, with three in each group plus a center one, surmounted with stars representing the original thirteen colonies.  On the back of the Badge is engraved “Virtutes Majorum Filiae Conservantmeaning, “Daughters Conserve the Virtues of Their Ancestors.”
