GRAND LODGE OF BRITISH FREEMASONS IN GERMANY OSNABRÜCK - BERLIN

History of the Banner

Banners have been associated with acts, methods and means of attracting attention. In pre-historic times they notified the tribe of returning warriors. Different shapes or even colours helped to distinguish one tribe from another and in times of conflict serves as a rallying point.

Nothing changes, the Banner today is still a source of identity and can serve as a powerful rallying point for any Masonic Order. Therefore every Scottish Lodge has a Banner to represent thier unique identification.
 
Like in pre-historic times, but on this occassion this Banner identifies the Masonic Lodge of Thistle & Saltire. The Banner is carried and escorted into the Lodge by the Banner Bearer at the start of each meeting and put to rest at the end. A symbol of the Identification of this Lodge to all those Visiting Brethren.
