Zeta Tau Alpha were founded on October 15, 1898 at the Virginia State Female Normal School (now Longwood University) in Farmville, Virginia. Approximately 210000 sisters in 155 chapters (from This website also has a listing of all of the symbols of Zeta Tau Alpha. There are two flags and one banner that the Zetas use.

The ZTA flag consists of a coat of arms on a white background, trimmed by an edge of turquoise blue (one of the two colors of ZTA, the other is Steel Grey).

As for the coat of arms, the meaning of the arms is secret to only their sisters. The flag can be seen at

There is a chapter flag that is kept at the International Offices, which is in Indianapolis, Indiana. The chapter flag is turquoise with a grey border. The name of the university is in the middle and the letters of their chapter is in the bottom fly. In the case of Arkansas Tech, the chapter is designated as Theta Theta. I will attach an image of the chapter flag as us-ztatt.gif. The chapter flag was created in 1998, along with others, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of ZTA.

The banner that is used is described as "rectangular and made of turquoise and gray satin. It bears the letters in Greek, and a burning torch." As with the coat of arms, the meaning of this banner is secret to the general public, but it is allowed to be displayed at the chapter house, room, lodge or anywhere on ZTA property. The image is at
