The stone triangle or pyramid represents the 3 degrees in craft Masonry. The 3 points
of the triangle represent the 3 Lesser Lights or 3 Burning Tapers which are a part
of the furnishings of every Masonic Lodge.
The All-Seeing-Eye within the pyramid represents the watchfulness of the Great Architect
of the Universe. It reminds us that we are always being watched or observed, and
to therefore govern ourselves accordingly while in public, or while in the company
of our brethren.
Within the points of the triangle are symbols representing 3 Officers Jewels; the
Square, Plumb,and Level. These working tools are also representative of the 3 Lesser
Lights and their Masonic interpretations.
The Rising Sun at the apex of the pyramid is representative of the fact that there
are Masonic Lodges in all points of the globe. It can truly be said that "the sun
never sets on Freemasonry". The sun also represents the Worshipful Master of each
Lodge, so the sun is positioned above the pinnacle of the pyramid and above the Square,
or Masters Jewel.
The wings represent personal freedom and liberty which is an ideal Freemasons have
embraced since the beginnings of our ancient and noble fraternity. Wings are also
a symbol which is much embraced by those who enjoy sport motorcycling, and is used
in many motorcycle related logos such as Harley Davidson, just to name one example.
The words "Meet on the level & Part upon the square" were added to remind our non-riding
brethren that the Widows Sons are Masons above all, and we should be greeted and
treated as such. It is our hope that this will help our brethren to overcome any
prejudices or preconceptions they may have regarding those who ride motorcycles.
The phrase also stimulates the curiosity of Non-Masons who see our logo and may cause
them to inquire about its meaning. This allows us to respond about its Masonic nature
and inform them about Freemasonry and our fraternity.
