An Tir Chirurgeons' Guild

Chirurgeon's Regalia

The badge of the Office of the Chirurgeon, registered in January of 1992, is blazoned: "Gules, on a goutte argent a fleam gules." As the Chirurgeonate operates as a guild, Chirurgeon's are designated by one of three ranks; Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master. There is also a fourth honorary rank of Chirurgeon Emeritus.

The Chirurgeon's Handbook identifies the type of badge, favor or token bearing the badge of the Chirurgeonate that each rank of chirurgeon may wear, and under what circumstances they should be worn.

These badges are:
