Long Description:

This flag flies in front of the Masonic Temple in Tracy, California.

We couldn't find any reference to an official Freemasonry flag. According to Wikipedia, Freemasonry is non-dogmatic and there is no general interpretation for any Masonic symbol that is used by Freemasonry as a whole.

However, given the location of the flag and the use of symbols commonly associated with the organization, we believe, the flag is representative at least for the Mt. Oso Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons.

The flag is bue with the golden Freemasonry symbols of Square and Compasses in the center. Like in many English speaking jurisdictions, the Square and Compasses are depicted with the letter "G" in the center. The letter stands for God, and is to remind Masons that God is at the center of Freemasonry. The letter can also stand for Geometry, described as being "the noblest of the sciences", and "the superstructure upon which Freemasonry is founded".

Name of Organization: Mt. Oso Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons
