Recognition Pins

Masonic Lapel Pins

Recognition pins are worn not only by members of Masonic lodges, but by most other Freemason appendant bodies such as Scottish Rite, York Rite, Eastern Star, Shrine, Rainbow Girls, DeMolay and others.

Achievement:  They are worn to symbolize a specific achievement, such as having been raised to the Sublime Degree of  Master Mason. 

After having been made a Mason, other members of the fraternity address fellow members as "Brother", followed by their first name. 

Recognition Lapel Pins:  The primary reason Freemasons wear Masonic jewelry is that it aids in the recognition of another member as to which post or degree that person has achieved. 

This helps others in the fraternity to address them correctly.  For instance, in Eastern Star, a Past Worthy Matron would not be called by her first name.  She would be called "Past Worthy Matron". 

Masonic Recognition Pins Photos

As you can see from the old Masonic photos, below, Masonic recognition lapel pins have been worn by members of the fraternity for many years and are still very popular, today. 

Each of the gentlemen below, wear different recognition lapel pins on their left lapel, however the brother in the first photo wears his Masonic pins on both lapels. 

Judging from their hairstyles and attire as well as the sepia and gray colored backgrounds, these professionally produced photos are probably over 100 years old.
