Blue is considered a calming, soothing colour, perhaps related to its association with water and to the sky. Possibly due to ancient cultures’ association of the sky with heavenly, untouchable powers, blue is sometimes associated with magic or magical powers. Blue is often a color used to symbolize honesty, trustworthiness, tradition, and stability. Finally, because it is one of the colors of the United States Flag, it is often a symbol of patriotism in the U.S..
For graduate hoods and academic regalia colors, blue or shades of blue are used to designate the degree or discipline of Arts in Education, Counseling and Guidance, Education, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Service, Government, Optometry, Pedagogy, Philosophy, Political Science, Public Administration, Public Service, and Religious Education.
Schools Using Royal Blue Gowns
Royal blue has found its way into many high school colors and university or college colors, symbols and logos. It is the most popular color used for commencement ceremonies in the United States. Because of this popularity, we always stock a large supply of royal blue caps and gowns for high schools and colleges. If you would like references to schools using royal blue graduation caps and gowns, please look to our homepage for a Testimonials link, or email us and ask for a reference in your area.
Tassel and Year-Date
The metallic year is called a tassel drop or signet. We carry the current year, most prior years going back about ten years, and sometimes the next future year. We cannot make a special tassel-drop at this time, and all tassel drops are pulled from our stock and not cast on-site.
These types of graduation gowns are called our Keeper line of gowns. These caps and gowns are made from polyester fabric. Ideal for a single-use or as a souvenir during a school commencement ceremony. These gowns are usually used by high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, community colleges, and some four-year colleges and universities. If you are looking for a matte color, more durable gown, or a professional robe, please return to our front page and take a look at our Academic Regalia section.
The fabric is lightweight, shrink resistant, mildew resistant, and quick drying. It is also strong, resistant to stretching, most chemicals, and abrasion. They are reliably resilient and crisp when wet or dry, and retain heat-set pleats and creases. These robes can be washed in ordinary washers and dryers, though we do not recommend you do so very many times as they are not intended for long-term use. These gowns can fade from long exposure to the sun.
