What is Masonry?
Masonry is an institution that has its origin in the old brotherhoods of stonemasons. This institution has more than 300 years of history and is ruled by the motto of "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity". Currently, Freemasonry presents itself as a citizen training tool under strict moral rules. Great characters in history such as Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Mozart, Garibaldi, Mark Twain, Ramón y Cajal or Clara Campoamor were Freemasons.
Symbols of Masonry
Symbology is very important for Masonry, due to its initiatory and philosophical character. The best-known symbols of Freemasonry are the set square, the compass, the level, the plumb line and other elements related to construction and masons. The best known symbols are the set square and the compass. The square represents the rectitude that masons have to have in their behavior and the compass represents wisdom and the search for truth. All ritual swords keep these two important symbols.
Swords in Masonry
Masonic swords represent the honor, value and dignity of the people who are part. Furthermore, swords are very important during Masonic rituals. The Flaming sword is placed next to the Venerable Master and embodies the values and virtues of the Order. The Templeguard Brothers also use them for the defense of the Temple, in a symbolic way.
