New 150th Anniversary Logo of Madawaska Lodge 196


Arnprior and Madawaska lodge were created during an era when lumber and grist mills were burgeoning due to it being where the Madawaska and Ottawa rivers met, which were vital to the logging industry in those days. As an initial thought, it would be good to capture the historical significance of Madawaska River and the logging heritage in a new Masonic logo for the

lodge. The designer of this device is Bro. Colin Mackenzie of Hazeldean Lodge No 517 in Kanata, who has done many lodge logos in the district including most recently that of The Builders Lodge 177.

Symbolic Significance:

The Square and Compasses – These are the single most universally identifiable symbols of Freemasonry. When these two Masonic tools are placed together with God (the Creator) as our central focal point (just as King Solomon built God's Temple, first, and then built his house around it), peace and harmony is the result.

The Maple Leaf - Represents unity across the entire country- regardless of birthplace. It is an inclusive symbol, and the maple leaf has become a symbol of Canada's nationality and independence.

The White Pines - Arnprior has the rare advantage of being surrounded by such an enriching natural environment. The white pines were incorporated to serve as a reminder that such lush surroundings exist. They are a reminder of history, but also a symbol of peace and longevity.

Water - Aside from being a beautiful feature of Arnprior and its history, the water/river imagery is much more than its literal design. The use in the logo becomes a symbol of life and change.

Note: Grand Lodge authorized Madawaska Lodge to wear a pin bearing this logo for their sesquicentennial year.
