Thomas, if I were you, I'd question the accuracy of your acquaintances who told you that actually being Masons. You can easily identify them to be
either true or frauds: all you have to do is ask to see their Lodge membership card. If they are Masons, they will provide it. If they are only
pretending to be Masons, they will likely come up with a story about the cards being secret, and refuse to show it.
If they actually told you that, I do not believe that they're really Masons, for the simple reason that Masons would know better.
I mention this because, as I wrote recently in an earlier thread, each Masonic organization has its own car decal. The Blue Lodge decal is the square
and compass with the Letter G in the center. The 32° car decal is a double headed eagle with the number 32 enclosed within a delta over its head. The
33° car decal is identical, except the eagle is crowned, and the number in the delta is 33.
York Rite car decals include the Triple Tau (symbol of the Royal Arch degree), a broken triangle with a trowel (symbol of Cryptic Masonry), and a
cross and crown (symbol of Knights Templar).
The Shrine decal is the famous sphinx head and tiger's claw (the same emblem found on Shriners fezzes).
