Ceremonies ranging from graduations and religious observances to fraternal and social rituals frequently call for particular and unique adornment, for observers as well as participants.

Clothing, headwear, hair decoration, jewelry, ribbons, and other symbols of rank or achievement, along with the music and rituals, are recognizable as marking a particular ceremony.
