Thank you for your willingness to help the Bagatelle’s office in supplying Meridies with the award regalia needed to properly reward our populace.

Below you will find links to the instructions on how to make regalia for the kingdom.

About Badges and Regalia
Depictions of the heraldic badges CAN be used for award regalia, but please know that the regalia artwork can be different from the badge artwork. For example, the traditional regalia for the Order of the Bough is a small cypress disk with a gold uncial letter M painted on it. However, the badge (as shown below on this page) is much different.


SCA AWARDS AND ORDERS

There are no heraldic badges for these. Except for the Order of the Rose, the text regarding the regalia below is from Meridies Kingdom Law, issued 14 April 2007.

Award of Arms
Members of the Populace with Awards of Arms may wear a totally unornamented circlet of any metal with no protrusions above or below the band, the overall height of which shall not exceed ¼ inch.

Grant of Arms
Members of the Populace with Grants of Arms may wear a totally unornamented circlet of any metal with no protrusions above or below the band, the overall height of which shall not exceed ½ inch.

Patent of Arms
Bestowed Peers (Chivalry, Laurels, and Pelicans) may wear a circlet of precious metal with no protrusions above or below the band, with simple ornamentation, the overall height not to exceed 1 inch. (See the back pages of Kingdom Law for order-specific information on regalia.)


Territorial or Court Barony

Territorial or Court Barons and Baronesses may wear coronets of precious metal with 6 spheroids or precious stones, with simple ornamentation, the overall height not to exceed 2 inches.

The Order of the Rose
There is nothing in Kingdom Law regarding regalia or badges for this Order. However, use of a wreath of roses in SCA heraldry is reserved to Queens and members of this Order. Use of a chaplet of roses in SCA heraldry is reserved to Princesses. A chaplet has four flowers. A wreath can have more than four – such as the eight shown here.


ROYAL APPOINTMENTS
For these orders, the Sovereign and/or Consort traditionally elect a person to serve Them in that capacity during Their reign – often by that person winning a competition.

The Companionate of the Bard The Companionate of the Poet Laureate
The Companionate of the King’s Lancer The Companionate of the Queen’s Yeoman
The Companionate of the Meridian King’s Champion The Companionate of the Meridian Queen’s Champion

ORDERS OF HIGH MERIT
All of these (except the Scarlet Star) are called consulting orders or polling orders. Per Kingdom Law, the polling orders are given the right to make recommendations to the Crown as a group regarding the election of their members.
