change re non-monastic deacon
==Russian/Ukrainian tradition==
All ranks of the clergy wear the kamilavka. These are normally taller than the Greek style, become wider as they rise, and are flat on the top. The kamilavka with the epanokamelavkion (veil) permanently attached, called a [[klobuk]], is worn by monastics, both men and women. As [[bishop]]s must be monastics, they also wear the klobuk. All monastics, both those who are ordained and those who are not, wear black kamilavkas with a black veils. As with the Greek tradition, hierodeacons remove the veil when they take part in church services, and hieromonks do not. However, a non-monastic deacon does not wear a kamilavka; a protodeacon, however, may be awarded the purple or red kamilavka.
While bishops, as monks, wear the klobuk, that is a plain black kamilavka with a black veil, the klobuk of higher ranked bishops differ. The veil for [[archbishop]]s has a jeweled cross on the from of the veil. [[Metropolitan]]s wear a white veil over their kamilavka, with the same cross as do the archbishops.The head dress for the Patriarch of Moscow differ more significantly. He wears a head covering called a koukoulion, a white conical head covering, instead of the kamilavka, with the monastic veil.
For non-monastic clergy, the kamilavka, of different colors, can be received as [[Clergy awards|awards]]. Married Non-monastic deacons awarded the honorary rank of [[protodeacon]] wear a colored kamilavka, usually purple or red, as do [[archpriest]]s. [[Archdeacon]]s, however, continue to wear the black kamilavka.
