Paul A. Cole


The Symbolism and Meaning Behind the Design

The pin reflects the Christian character of our Order on a shield. It is under His banner that we are enlisted. The swords symbolize our duty as Soldiers of the Cross, Christian Soldiers, and as Christian Masons who defend the Christian religion. The black and white background denotes the Beauceant and alludes to the prosperity of the Commandery and to the prosperity of this Valiant and Magnanimous Order.
