William B.Barnett Lodge No. 187

Free & Accepted Masons

100+ Year's Strong Chartered January 20, 1910

From the South

Greetings from the South Brethren,

This month as part of our continuing masonic Education here’s a quick conversation to ponder. We have always heard of the term “Blue Lodge”. What does the term “Blue" mean? Some authorities think that as blue has, from ancient Biblical times, been associated with truth, with Deity, with wisdom and hope; that, as Albert G. Mackey taught, the blue of the Old Testament is a translation of the Hebrew “tekelet", which is derived from a root meaning "perfection", and the color blue came into Masonry as its colorby natural association. Others believe that as our ancient Brethren met on hills and in vales, over which the blue vault of heaven is a ceiling, that the covering of a lodge is the clouded canopy or starry decked heaven. These allusions seem to connote that blue, the color of the sky, is that of all celestial attributes for which Freemasons strive.
