THE PINK CARNATION
The carnation was named our official flower at Convention in 1888. In 1950, members affirmed the color.
Carnations have been revered for more than 2,000 years as one of the most long-lasting flowers.
Many varieties produce a clove-like scent, and the aroma is said to be both uplifting and motivating.
Mary A. Bingham contributed the idea of a crescent as part of the badge design. The crescent stands for growth of the Sorority and its individual members.
