What Is Freemasonry? |👁△🔻 The Masonic Symbols 📐🇬🧭

Masonic symbols

In the Masonic language, colors have a special meaning – for example, blue alongside white and black indicate the Masonic degrees, where blue represents universal friendship and goodwill.

Today, the main Masonic symbols are the “three great lights”: the “other,” the “compass,” and the “volume of the Holy Law” (the most famous of the Masonic symbols), as well as the letter “G,” written inside an archer and a compass, which represents the initials of the words “God,” “geometry, generation, genius, gnosis.”

The letter “G” in the center of the symbol remains subject to dispute. For example, some Massachusetts Institute of Technology experts believe that the letter “G” in the logo’s center represents geometry, an area critical to early Freemasons. In contrast, others believe it means God, the “Great Architect of the Universe.” There is another lesser-known Masonic symbol drawn from nature: the beehive. “Masons were originally hard-working people who had to be as busy as bees,” says one expert. “And the hive symbolizes the industriousness of the lodge.”
