What is Masonic emblem? This question is usually being asked by the new members of the fraternity. The reason is they got confused with the symbol to emblem maybe because most Masonic writers used the two words interchangeably.

 Remember that the word emblem means a visible symbol representing an abstract idea. Meaning emblems is also a symbol but not all symbols are emblems. Symbols have multiple connotations whereas emblems only have one meaning.

The symbol of square and compasses is a Masonic emblem because its only meaning is to represent or serves as a trademark of Freemasonry. The square and compasses Masonic emblem used two Masonic symbols to form the Freemasonry emblem; the square and the compasses.

Besides the Freemasonry square and compasses emblem, there are other Masonic emblems within the fraternity and its bodies.

Order of the Eastern Star Emblem


Scottish Rite


Hope you got a clear view between Masonic symbol and emblems.
