Regalia

As masons, we wear regalia to signify to others our rank within the lodge. Standard mason regalia consists of an apon, collar and jewel(s). Every mason wears an apron, what's on that apron will depend on their degree/rank. If a member of the lodge takes office he will be presented with a coller and jewel signifying his office.

Craft Lodge Regalia

1st Degree Apron

The first apron a newly initiated brother will receive is a plain white apron and in selected lodges, white gloves are presented the initiate.

2nd Degree Apron

In the 2nd Degree, this would then be replaced by a similar apron, this time with two turquoise rosetts in the bottom corners. The first two aprons are provided by the lodge as he will not be wearing these for very long.

3rd Degree Apron

Next comes the Master Masons (MM) Apron (3rd Degree) this has the same rosetts as the 2nd Degree this time with a third on the flap, it also has blue band around edge and two tassels.

Worshipful Master Apron

Once a brother has been through "the chair" he will be presented with a Worshipful Masters (WM) apron which is very similar to the MM apron this time instead of the rosetts are replaced with levels.
