The Canons Regular of the Order of Prémontré
The Pope wears a white camauro. The Canons wear a white biretta. The 3 cornered biretta, a hat worn by many other Roman Catholic clergy, is red for Cardinals, purple for Bishops and black for priests, deacons and seminarians. The retired Pope Benedict XVI, as at 1 March 2013, also wears white on his head.
