The badge of Alpha Omicron Pi is composed of the three initial letters of the three words of our Motto, superimposed one upon the next in order, which gives the Fraternity its name. The Badge may only be worn by initiated members and is always worn over the heart.
Alpha Omicron Pi has only one color, cardinal.
While not an official symbol, the Fraternity and our chapters consider the Panda to be AOII's mascot. Many AOII chapters donate stuffed Pandas to children with arthritis or other children in need in our communities.
Alpha Omicron Pi has only one jewel, the ruby. The occasional use of pearls or diamonds in special badges has no significance or
General Jaqueminot Rose
The 19th Century French rose, General Jacqueminot, a deep red rose, was chosen as the flower of Alpha Omicron Pi because its color is the symbol of the central and essential virtue of the Fraternity. AOII is the only women's fraternity that does not use a crest. Our Founders felt that the beauty and simplicity of our Badge possessed enough significance to stand alone. Crests are medieval, and AOII was founded on Greek ideals, therefore, they thought a crest would be inappropriate. Where other groups might use a crest, we display the rose.
The wheat indicates usefulness in its harvest. The binding together of the wheat into a sheaf gave Alpha Omicron Pi the new member pin (shown), the name for the magazine (To Dragma), and the rings for the chapter president and international president.
