This page is about the meaning, origin and characteristic of the symbol, emblem, seal, sign, logo or flag: Freemasonry.
Freemasonry is one of the world's oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry.
The Square and Compasses is one of the most prominent symbols of Freemasonry. The "G" in the middle represents God, otherwise known inside Lodges as "The Grand Geometrician of the Universe", since Freemasonry demands belief in no specific faith, simply a belief in a "Supreme Being". It has also been ascribed to the Worshipful Master's word.
