Green Sash

In the Arthurian tale, Gawain and the Green Knight, the green sash was a girdle made of silk that could protect the wearer from harm. Sir Gawain felt he needed it to survive his encounter with the green knight, so he took it despite a promise to his host. Ultimately the entire ordeal was a test which Gawain failed, and he returned to Camelot in shame. Arthur however felt Gawain was still one of the finest knights in the land and made every knight of the round table wear a green sash to honor him.
