Banner of the Lodge.
The Banner of the Lodge is decorated at the top with a ribbon carrying its name in bold print. Just below appears the Square and Compasses with the Lodge’s registration number printed across these emblems. A list of the names of the founders appears at the bottom of the banner. The picture of a lion protectively shielding a lamb is in the center of the banner. This emblem has been adopted as the motif of Concord Lodge and appears on its summonses, letterhead and all other official documents of the Lodge.
