Chi Omega's Crest was adopted in 1902. Centered on the crest is the white carnation, with the Chi to the left and the Omega to the right of the flower. Above these symbols are both the skull and crossbones and the owl. Beneath the carnation are the five letters, Rho, Beta, Upsilon, Eta and Sigma. A laurel wreath, used by ancient Greeks to honor scholars and heroes, surrounds all of the emblems known and loved by Chi Omegas. Only initiated members may wear or use the crest on novelties, stationery and jewelry.
Chi Omega's badge is a monogram of the Greek letter "Chi" superimposed over the Greek letter "Omega." The fourteen stones, always pearls or diamonds, are set into the badge. Dr. Charles Richardson, one of Chi Omega's Founders, crafted our first badge from dental gold. Only initiated members may wear the badge.
Chi Omega's Open Declaration is "Hellenic Culture and Christian Ideals." This statement summarizes the foundation of Chi Omega. Our members recognize the efforts and enlightenment of the Greek world and they strive to uphold the values of a Judeo Christian lifestyle.
Chi Omega's colors are cardinal (red) and straw (yellow). Every Chi Omega may use and wear our colors!
