In the processions the Brothers are preceded by bell-ringers who ring their hand-bells with monotonous regularity, moved forward with banners and torcheres and wearing the chaperon, a velvet scarf embroidered with silver or gold.
Each Brotherhood has its hierarchy. At the highest level stands the Master or Provost assisted by a magistrate. Each Brotherhood possesses their own patron saint, emblems, crosses, banners and staffs.
