Phikeia Button Adopted


In May 1894, a button for Phikeias to wear was officially adopted; the first pledging insignia used by any fraternity. The button was a blue and white pin with “Phikeia” written in the middle. This Phikeia emblem originated from the chapter at the University of Pennsylvania.

Phikeia Oath: “I will strive in all ways to transmit the Fraternity to those who may follow after, not only, not less, but greater than it was transmitted to me.”
