Knight Commander Court of Honour Synthetic Badge: The jewel is called the "Synthetic Badge" because it synthesizes, brings together, the teachings of Masonry. It is a rectangle of gold, one inch long and one-half an inch wide, in the form of a double square. Within it are embedded three sparkling clear stones, in the form of a triangle with three equal sides, the apex pointing upward. Its form will remind you of the first steps in Masonry: the oblong square of the step of the Entered Apprentice. Its gold base, the metal of the sun, itself a symbol of intellectual light and knowledge, as its genial warmth is of loving-kindness and sympathy, may suggest to you your continuing duty to spread the blessings of education and abound in charitable deeds; while the triangle of reflected light will impress you and each of us that the highest teachings of the fraternity of Freemasons is symbolized by the triangle. The badge sums up all Masonry, and we should wear it as a constant reminder of our duty to be a true Mason.
