(French Alliance Black/White Cockade)

History of Cockades: In the 18th century, it was pinned on the side of a man's tricorne or cocked hat, or on his lapel. Women could also wear it on their hat or in their hair. A cockade uses distinctive colors to show the allegiance of its wearer to some political faction, their rank, or as part of a servant's livery. During the American Revolution, the Continental Army initially wore cockades of various colors as an ad hoc form of rank insignia; before long they all reverted to wearing the black cockade they inherited from the British. Later, when France became an ally of the United States, the Continental Army pinned the white cockade of the French Ancien Régime onto their old black cockade; the French reciprocally pinned the black cockade onto their white cockade, as a mark of the French-American alliance. The black-and-white cockade thus bacame known as the "Union or Alliance Cockade".
I can also make cockades out of your scrap material so the hat decoration will match your clothing (optional).
