Revision as of 16:05, 3 September 2004

Tassels are used to decorate banners, cloths, clothing, poles etc. and can be given to others as favours.

In the SCA, they are also used as "prizes" for the winners of tournaments and other competitions. Traditionally the victor attaches the tassel to his banner, or gives it to his/her consort to attach to theirs because they inspired them to victory in honourable combat over the field.

That doesn't mean you can't make and wear your own tassels. Just try not to display them in a way that infers you won them (eg. a single colour tassel attached to your banner).
