DeMolay Pledge Pin

The Demolay pledge button is a distinctive lapel button of sterling silver with a Maltese Cross in black enamel.  The button is for the purpose of identifying petitioners and may be issued by Demolay Chapters to those who petition for the Demolay Degrees so that they may be recognized as such. The button is worn until the Degrees are received.

Original description from the 1976 Demolay hand book for young men in action.

Demolay Legion of Honor Pin

    

The Legion of Honor is the highest honor conferred by the DeMolay Supreme Council. The award was approved in 1925 and first conferred upon Louis Lower.  With amendment of the Supreme Council's statutes in 1985, the minimum age for nominees for the Legion of Honor was dropped from 30 to 25 as of January 15.  The Supreme Council may confer the Legion of Honor upon a Senior DeMolay for outstanding leadership in some field of endeavor, for service to humanity, or for success in fraternal life, including adult service to the Order of DeMolay. The Supreme Council may also confer it upon a Freemason who was not a DeMolay, but who has performed unusual and meritorious service in behalf of the Order of DeMolay, or who has evidenced a spirit of cooperation and appreciation for the Order of DeMolay.

 

This I.S.C. Patch was made for deputies of the I.S.C. and only those who are active official members can where it. It is hand stitched and has been kept in its original plastic covering.  It dates to approximately 1972.
