As the result of considerable classification, Brother Robert Macoy presents nine principal crowns recognized in heraldry and symbolism: 1. The Triumphal Crown, of which there were three kinds---a laurel wreath, worn by a General while in the act of triumph; a golden Crown, in imitation of laurel leaves ; and the presentation golden Crown to a conquering General. 2. The Blockade Crown of wild flowers and grass, presented by the army to the Commander breaking and relieving a siege. 3. The Civic Crown of oak leaves, presented to a soldier who saved the life of his comrade. 4. The Olive Crown, conferred upon the soldiery or commander who consummated a triumph. 5. The Mural Crown, which rewarded the soldier who first sealed the wall of a besieged city. 6. The Naval Crown, presented to the Admiral who won a naval victory. 7. The Vallary Crown, or circlet of gold, bestowed on that soldier who first surmounted the stockade and forced an entrance into the enemy's camp. 8. The Ovation Crown, or chaplet of myrtle, awarded to a General who had destroyed a despised enemy and thus obtained the honor of an ovation. 9. The Eastern or Radiated Crown, a golden circle set with projecting rays. The crown of Darius, used in Red Cross knighthood and in the Sixteenth Degree, Scottish Rite, was one of seven points, the central front projection being more prominent than the other six in size and height.
