For Sale from Red Sales:
$35. There are many trains of thought over who the knight might represent. Some believe that it is Godiva in armour—covered up during the times when the University threatened UBC Engineering with student fee-freezes if Godiva was ever printed; some believe that it is Godiva’s husband…but why would we make a patch about a tyrant?; and finally some believe that the knight represents the Engineer—following in Godiva’s footsteps, ever sacrificing.
$35. This patch depicts our patron saint during her time of sacrifice for her people. Read the story here.
$25. These limited edition patches are to commemorate the passing of our beloved Cheeze.

La crème de la crème, this coveted award is given only under exceptional circumstances, when the STUdeNt projecT enhances our already prestigious reputation on a global scale. The Black E is treated with reverence, and spoken of in hushed tones. Come to Old Red New Red to meet wearers of this patch – you might not ever encounter one otherwise. The patch was originally an E-shaped pin with a black face, similar to the Gold E without a background.
