His chapeau-de-bras is black, with a black feather on top. His sash is black, with a white border, a Maltese cross, and a nine-pointed star. His apron is triangular in shape. It is black with a white border; there is a Maltese cross on the flap, and a triangle symbol on the body. His gauntlets are white; the gauntlet on his left hand has a black cross on the cuff.
