Norman Shield

The Norman Shield consists of a blue shield bearing a white Sigma Chi cross. This Norman Shield is most commonly known as the Fraternity's pledge pin. The Fraternity's Pledge manual also bears the name, The Norman Shield.

When suitably dressed, the pledge may wear his button or pin. With a suit or sport coat, it is worn in the buttonhole of the left lapel or as close thereto as is practical. When a coat is not worn, it is placed on the left side of the shirt front between the pocket and buttonholes and over the heart. Pledges should refrain from wearing the pin on a t-shirt, sweatshirt or other non-collared shirt. It may be worn on a pullover sweater.
