The Shriner's Flag Part II

Fremason Emblem
All Shriners are Master Masons but not all Freemasons are Shriners
While it is not exactly known when the Masonic Fraternity was formed, it is believed that the language and symbols used during the middle ages came from the stonemason's guilds.

Freemasonry emphasises on personal study, self-improvement, and social activities. Since the 1700s Freemasonry was one of the organisations mainly responsible for passing on, the ideals of dignity by man, liberty of the individual, the right of all persons to worship as they chose, the formation of democratic governments, and the importance of public education. It is said, that Freemasons supported the first public schools in both Europe and America.

Freemasons are all over the world involved in charity and community services. Their support ranges from providing hospitals for children, funding medical research, contributing to local community service, as well as providing care to Freemasons and their families at Masonic Homes.
