Band Graduation Cords could be referring to honor cords for a number of different achievements. Honor Cords can be worn by a high school band to show membership in the band, whether it be marching band or otherwise. The color and style of this honor cord is at the discretion of the students in the band or the band director / band teacher. The only rule in this case is that the color or style of graduation cord chosen does not match another group at the high school. The cords could be intertwined (braided) or solid (one color only), double or single.
A second meaning of Band Graduation Cord is also at the high school level. It is a double pink honor cord to show membership in Tri-M.
