An Interpretation of the Insignia
“The encircling band of blue is the loyalty that
holds us together with the Federation.
It is tipped with gold that is enduring in our friendship and our music.
The eagle of supremacy, with outspread wings,
stands guard above us – supreme in the power of music and goodness.
Across all rests our symbol, interpreted,
we read – “My Country, Tis of Thee.”
It is with faith in friendship, country, and God
that we stand secure within the bonds
of our Federation through music.”
Julia Fuqua Ober
