Identifying Rank with the New 4th Degree Uniform

Brother Sir Knights:

When wearing the new uniform, rank will be identified by a color patch that will be placed behind the 4th Degree emblem on the beret. The patch colors are as follows:

  • Purple for Color Corps Commander
  • White for Faithful Navigator or Past Faithful Navigator
  • Green for District Marshal
  • Gold for District Master (or former DM)
  • Light Blue for Vice Supreme Master (or former VSM)


Members that currently use the red-lined regalia cape will not be issued a color patch for their beret

The patch WILL NOT be included with your new uniform from Knights Gear (

You must first order your uniform from Knights Gear, then you can order your patch. Do not order the patch first. Patches will only be sent to those who have already ordered the uniform.

The color patch will be fulfilled directly from the Supreme Office with instructions on attaching it to the beret. Knights Gear WILL NOT be providing these patches.

To obtain your color patch.

  • Send an email to AFTER you have ordered your uniform
  • In the Subject line of the email, type "Color Patch for Uniform Requested"
