Guys and galls there is an interesting article on himalayanart about the Lama with white Karmapa-style hat:
http://www.himalayanart.org/news/post.c ... -tradition
So now we have almost all colours:
Black Crown
Karmapa
Image

Red Crown
Shamar Rinpoche
Image

Situ Rinpoche (sorry couldn´t find a pic with his real crown)
Image

Orange Crown
Gyaltsab Rinpoche
Image

Multicolored Crown
Karma Chagme Rinpoche
Image

Pawo Rinpoche
Image

I heard that there is a Lama in Zurmang tradition, who is the bearer of Green crown, but I couldn´t find the pic. Does anyone have any info on the Lama? Any other "crowned" lamas of Karma Kagyu and related branch lineages?

The late Kyabje Kalu Rinpoches Guru Yishin Norbu was known as the White Crown Lama. According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shangpa_Kagyu

And here is a pic of the current TsaTsa Drubgön Rinpoche whose former incarnation recieved the white crown from 8th Karmapa Mikyö Dorje http://www.travelblog.org/Photos/6166947

The Wikipedia article I posted above states: "In the west, the principle teacher of the Shangpa Kagyu lineage was the first Kalu Rinpoche. He received the lineage teachings in the early 1940s when he went for training at Tsa Tsa Monastery in Eastern Tibet. He trained with the Abbot of the monastery, His Holiness the eighth Tsa Tsa Drubgen, Yizhin Norbu, also called Karma Singhe and the White Crown Master. The Karma Kagyu regent H.E. Tai Situ Rinpoche described Yizhin Norbu as “one of the most learned and accomplished Kagyu masters now living.”
There, Kalu Rinpoche received the complete cycle of the Shangpa teachings during a closed retreat. Tsa Tsa monastery is also a major Dakpo Kagyu Centre and preserves the rime tradition. His Holiness the Tsa Tsa Drubgen Yizhin Norbu died in the middle of June, 2005. The Shangpa traditions are currently held by his regent and successor His Holiness the second Gyalten Thongwa Rangdrol..."

Maybe of topic but according to Kyabje Kalu Rinpoches site the only masters upholding the Shangpa lineage are Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche, HE Tai Situ Rinpoche, HE Gyaltsab Rinpoche and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche http://www.paldenshangpa.org/Official-Letter.html

So does anybody know anything about that Shangpa lineage in Tibet upheld by HH the 2nd Gyalten Thongwa Rangdrol?

Not sure about in Zurmang Kagyu, but Karma Khenchen Rinpoche---the younger son of the late Neydo Karma Chagme---wears a green hat.

He is said to be a reincarnation of Abbot Shantarakshita and an emanation of Vimalamitra.

After a while you'd think they'd figure out how to make hats so the wearer doesn't have to hold it on their heads with their hand!

But I can't find one of Shamar Rinpoche or the two 17th Karmapas with Vajra Crowns. Did they ever perform a Crown Ceremony?
