The Story of the Forget-Me-Not Flower

Shortly after Hitler's rise to power it became apparent Freemasonry was in danger.  In lieu of the square and compass, it was decided by the Grand Lodge of Germany to wear the forget-me-not as a means of identity for Masons.  Throughout the war the forget-me-not was worn by those who refused to let the light of Masonry be extinguished.

Thus did a simple flower blossom forth into a meaningful emblem of the Fraternity and become perhaps the most widely worn pin among Freemasons in Germany.  Today, this emblem is worn by many Masons throughout the World as a remembrance of those difficult times.
