This Royal Blue Color

The color is listed as Royal Blue. For honors chords, we offer two variations on blue, this one and navy. Shades of royal blue include:azure, cerulean, denim, cornflower, dodger, persian, light blue (lt. blue), and steel. Blue relates to oceans, sky, stability, water, heaven, magic, honesty, calm, and patriotism.

Academic regalia, including graduation hood colors, use blue to indicate degrees (in no particular order): Political Science, Philosophy, Counseling and Guidance, Education, Pedagogy, Foreign Affairs, Public Administration, Optometry, Religions Education, Foreign Services, and Arts in Education.

Though stoles and hoods are usually restricted to wearing just one at a time as a suppliment to the rest of the academic dress outfit, multiple cords can be worn at the same time. You can even wear more than one set representing multiple honor societies. They are also often combined in multiple colors, such as royal blue and white. Academic additionally offers entwined double or tripple color combinations. Ultimately, each individual honor society determines what color and combination honorcords are appropriate for your commencement ceremony.
