The only scapular not oblong in shape. Designed as a shield, one part is blue, the other black, and the connecting bands are blue and black. Each part bears a picture of Michael the Archangel slaying the dragon, and the inscription Quis ut Deus? (Who is like to God?). It is the badge of an Archconfraternity of Saint Michael, founded in 1878. Blessed Pope Pius IX gave it his blessing, and it was indulgenced by Pope Leo XIII.
