In many SCA kingdoms, fencers who achieve the equivalent level of expertise and behaviour in fencing as that of a knighthood in standard combat may be entered into the Order of the White Scarf. They are given a white scarf to wear to signify their membership which is an allusion to the white belts worn by knights.
This is not a peerage order but the kingdoms that have signed the white scarf treaty acknowledge the rank of order members from outside their realm. Members are normally given a Grant of Arms on entering the order. The title commonly used is Don or Donna, but this is also used by Pelicans and Laurels as a Spanish alternative to Master or Mistress.
