Kappa Alpha Order

Kappa Alpha Order, is so-named to distinguish it from the separate Kappa Alpha Society, which is the oldest of the social Greek-letter fraternities. Kappa Alpha Order was established in Lexington, Virginia, at Washington College (now Washington and Lee University) in 1865. KA Order places special emphasis on the preservation of Southern heritage and its practice of displaying the Confederate flag has embroiled it in considerable controversy in recent years. KA Order has two flags. The basic flag is a vertical tricolor of crimson, white, and gold, with a crimson Greek cross on the center. This flag was adopted in 1893. The supplemental flag is a vertical bicolor, crimson and gold, with a white shield fimbriated in crimson on the center bearing the Greek cross beneath the letters K.A.
