The badge of the M.I. in New Zealand’s schools
In New Zealand, Knights have made up an insignia lapel pin for members of the Militia Immaculatae.
The pins are worn by all the pupils of the high schools (boys and girls) who have joined the militia. The few children in primary school who have joined the Militia also wear the insignia pins. Each school is broken down into different houses, so the children have a similar pin with their house name on it. Captains and Vice-captains of the houses also have medal bars designating their rank. The M.I. pins therefore match the style of these others and both boys and girls are proud to wear them.
These insignia pins were made available to all Knights of the parish and are worn by many of the faithful.
