Banner Series - LOL 1973


One of the most outward images of a lodge is the banner they carry at the head their ranks. In part 2 of a new series, we take a look at these local banners.


King George VI Memorial LOL 1973 switched from a full sized banner to a new bannerette in June 2017. The new standard was revealed at the lodge's annual service in Craigantlet Orange Hall.


The bannerette features Helen's Tower, from the nearby Clandeboye Estate where local soldiers trained prior to departing for the Great War, while there is a portrait of our current monarch's father, King George VI, after whom the lodge are named, on the opposite side.
