and Its Symbolism
The Golden Key is the official emblem of the Society. The golden field represents golden opportunities. Across the center on a black enamel band, three Greek letters appear, which are the initials of three mystic Greek words symbolizing phronimon (Phi), thumos (Theta) and katharotes (Kappa)—signifying wisdom, aspiration and purity respectively.
Behind the black band is a wreath composed of oak leaves on one side and laurel leaves on the other. The oak leaves stand for stability and strength of character. The graceful, curling leaves of the laurel signify achievement and success, all attributes for membership in our society.
Above the band is a representation of the head of Athena, the Goddess of Learning; in the base appear the mystic Greek letters meaning light: the light of knowledge and learning, the common ideal for members of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
The Golden Key pin is worn on a member’s left lapel. It may only he worn by members or honorary members of Phi Theta Kappa.
