What We Are
At the Fraternal Order of the Golden Owl, we learn and live chivalry …one adventure at a time.
Founded in 2020, the Order of the Golden Owl is helping to lead the way for people to learn and live an idealized chivalric life, based on today’s realities. This produces positive changes in our lives, which translate locally, nationally, and globally. Through personal adventures, events, and online networking perpetuated by our dedicated members, we work to hold ourselves accountable for our actions, create a life of dignity, of power, of peace, and morality. Awaken your power!

The fraternal Order of the Golden Owl was created as a means to instruct candidates in our chivalric code and to encourage living them out in the modern world. The inspiration for the Order originated as the Prior’s “Chivalry Now” project (www.chivalrynow.net) which was the Defensor Team of Sarasota Military Academy (www.sarasotamilitaryacademy.org), a martial art based chivalric self-defense club.
Becoming a Knight
The Order of the Golden Owl accepts candidates by the sole pleasure of the Prior through both nominations and applications. Our candidates come from all walks of life. To become a knight, you must complete our Squire Academy. The Squire Academy is a video platformed, virtual school that teaches chivalric concepts and sets the candidates on adventures that must be accomplished. Once complete, the candidate will be knighted in a private, virtual, accolade ceremony, and will receive a gold bordered, wax sealed, brevet of knighthood.

Badge of the Order
The Badge of the Order is a gold bordered, green Maltese cross with golden owls in the center and the junctions between the arms of the cross. Each golden owl is shown outstretched with a green chevron on its chest and two green balls within its talons. This symbol is only used within the Order. The golden owls are taken from the Prior’s Patents of Arms.
