Masonic Lodge Banners

While Masonic lodge banners are uncommon throughout most of the United States, they are a regular feature in lodge rooms around the world. They can be found in nearly every English constitution lodge, frequently with a custom lodge crest design.

Have a look at the Lodge Banners website at www.lodgebanners.co.uk for a glimpse of the wide variety of these works of art. Examples are usually accompanied by a history or explanation of the symbols.

  1. What is the purpose of the banner? Is it a calling back to the days of heraldry? I've also noticed Lodge crests which is why I'm asking.
