Mortarboard, n.m.: What is that breadboard on the head of American students? Called"Mortarboard" or"Oxford Cap", this symbol of accademic achievement was originally an Italian Renaissance hat, akin to the biretta worn by the clergy (hence the second part of its name; the prefix "mortar" - mortarboard coming from the similarity of the object to the vessel used by the mortarboard at the time).
Used in France before becoming an essentially Anglo-Saxon symbol, the mortarboard is an essential ingredient of the "graduation ceremonies": graduation ceremonies at Harvard, Oxford and also ... Cambridge.
But who cares about such symbols in France? VICTORIA'S of course since we have put this hat in the spotlight above the lion which is part of our logo
About the laurea hat
Graduation hat for men and women in the original Anglo-Saxon style. The material is black fabric with original semi-light pendant in a long satin tuft with fittings, the year of graduation. The inside is attached by a small elastic band.
This is the classic graduate hat of the Anglo-Saxons. At Oxford it was already used and the tag nell'Ottocento traditionally black or yellow gold. Today it is possible to have the tag the color of your faculty: Here are some examples:
Engineering and Architecture: black
Economics: yellow (sometimes pink)
Mathematics and Science: green
Psychology: burgundy red
Statistics: blue (sometimes also Psychology)
There are also differences between universities, you should always check with your faculty or students in the forums.
