I'm going to lump several of these together, to save space...

A blue scarf is used as the mark of an authorized rapier fighter in
Atlantia. I've never seen it used in Ansteorra, except by visiting Atlantians.

A white scarf is registered by the Herald's Office as insignia for the
Order of the White Scarf in Ansteorra, the Outlands, Trimaris, Atlantia,
Atenveldt, An Tir and Caid.

The only place I've ever encountered the term "Don of Fence" was in the
East Kingdom. In Ansteorra, members of the Order of the White Scarf are
called "Don" or "Don~a" by custom, but not by law.
