Anatomy of a York Rite Royal Arch Masonry Necktie Design

The Royal Arch Masonry is the first order a Master Mason joins in the York Rite. The Grand Emblem of Royal Arch Masonry is The Triple Tau.

The Triple Tau symbol is prominent on the design of our Royal Arch Masonry necktie but there are other inspirations from nature that I used in the pattern design such as the honeycomb. Honeycomb with eggs and larvae By Waugsberg (talk · contribs) - Self-photographed, CC BY-SA 3.0,https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=2009806

The hexagon is one of the three geometrical figures with equal sides that can fit together on a flat surface without leaving gaps- the other two are the equilateral triangle and the square. The bees instinctively chose this figure perhaps because it's the most stable and most efficient of all shapes.

York Rite Freemasons Necktie Trivium

The Trivium (grammar, logic, and rhetoric) is the lower division of the Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences. The Masonic Trowel is also one of the symbols that you can see in this particular design. 

This black-on-blue edition of Royal Arch Freemasons necktie is the 2nd edition in our Royal Arch Masonry necktie series. The first edition is the red-on-black version below (currently sold-out).
