United Bowmen of Philadelphia


Bowmen Mark Holders

The mark of a Bowmen is a special identifying symbol assigned to him upon election, together with colors and a motto. These marks have come down through the Club’s history, each usually being transferred, after a member’s death, resignation or election to Associate Membership, to a new member. However, some marks have been especially created to suit new members. Mottos and marks have been included here if they were available.
