The Emblem of the Fourth Degree

Sir Knights of the Fourth Degree, deem it an honor and privilege to carry our TRIAD EMBLEM, which features The Dove, The Cross, and The Globe.  Our Honored Order cherishes as its Patron, Christopher Columbus.

Spiritually, the sacred symbols fashioned on our sword and lapel pin, typify the union of the Three Divine Persons in one Godhead The Most Holy Trinity. 

  •   The Globe - God the Father, Creator of the Universe.   
  •   The Cross - God the Son, Redeemer of Mankind.  
  •   The Dove - God the Holy Spirit, Sanctifier of Humanity.


Bearers of this emblem are committed to conduct themselves honorably as Christian gentleman in their private and public lives, as well as acting patriotically for the good of their nations.  Likewise, the Fourth Degree sword represents the bearer's reverence for the Eucharist and the Pope, Bishops and Hierarchy of the Church, and displays publicly his willingness to protect his Church and priests.  Considered under a religious aspect, we have the homor and privilege of wearing on our swords and our lapels the sacred symbol of the Most Blessed Trinity.  This should always remind us to live a good Christian life, and that we should never bring dishonor on the emblem we have been privileged to wear.  By this, others may see our good works, through which we will glorify our Holy Religion, our Honored Order and our Beloved Country.
