Τhe Banner of the Grand Conclave
The Banner of the Grand Conclave of the Masonic Order of Pilgrim Preceptors was Dedicated during its Annual Meetings held at the Central London Masonic Centre, Clerkenwell Green, London, on Saturday June 29 th , 2013, by the Grand Master, Most Illustrious Brother Stephen Michael Ayres, JP.
Key elements of the Banner are the ethos of the Order, and its motto, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, which surround the jewel of the Order.
The combined motto of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity, although intrinsically associated with the dominant late 18 th -19 th century European philosophical movements, settled in the hearts of Freemasons all over the Continent and was therefore universally adopted as another threefold set of principles within the Fraternity. In this sense, these principles are thought to have always been inculcated in the conscience of Humanity and, when properly applied, to have a liberating effect both at practical as well as at spiritual level. Conciliation of individual liberty and equality of rights with equality of results and fraternity will remain forever relevant to the zealous and aspiring Brethren.
The jewel of the Order consists of a complex of five equilateral Triangles of different sizes. The greater Triangle stands in our Conclave as the symbol of the motto of the Order: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. The sides of the of the centre represents Morality, Virtue and Rectitude, and the rest of the three smaller Triangles represent principles such as Justice, Temperance, and Prudence; Faith, Hope, and Charity; Truth, Brotherly Love, and Relief; the components of a spiritual mason!
