Awards for Arts & Sciences

From Kingdom of Atenveldt

Flower of the Desert

The Flower of the Desert recognizes people who show practical skill in the Arts and Sciences of the Middle Ages.  We learn and practice all the crafts, skills, and technologies used in the time period and cultures covered by the SCA. You see the results in use at our events; such as the costumes (garb) we wear, the armor used in combat, the illuminated scrolls presented in Court, and the recipes used for a feast.  This award has the first level of precedence for Kingdom arts awards, above an Award of Arms.

Commander of the Fleur du Soleil

The Commander of the Fleur is given to someone who continues to show an outstanding level of teaching and practice of their arts, and already has a Fleur du Soleil.  This is a very special award because only one may be given out per reign and the Crown puts a lot of thought into their choice.  The award includes a Grant of Arms and has a higher precedence than the Fleur du Soleil.
