“The Flaming Star is one of the essential symbols of the fellowcraft in Freemasonry. Its arms represent the 5 directions of research of the degree and comprehend the number that is present for those who aspire to be received as Master Masons.
The Flaming Star is the Pole Star of the Fellowcraft as it shows them that they are invited to several journeys and become by themselves the source of Light and understanding. In the Temple it is hanged in the East, over the Worshipful Master table. Its arms represents a constant progression, but none points to the floor or backwards.”

The Tall Cedars of Lebanon of North America is one of the various appendant bodies of Freemasonry, open only to Master Masons in good standing in a regular Masonic Lodge. Unlike the York Rite or Scottish Rite, which confer Masonic degrees which extend or expound upon basic craft Masonry, Tall Cedarism is more a social body, like the Shriners. Its motto, “Fun, Frolic, & Fellowship,” is indicative of this social bent. Its members are distinguished by the pyramid-shaped hats they wear at their functions.
“”And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely,E‧li′a‧kim the son of Hil‧ki′ah. And I will clothe him with your robe, and your sash I shall firmly bind about him, and your dominion I shall give into his hand; and he must become a father to the inhabitant of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. And I will put the key of the house of David upon his shoulder, and he must open without anyone’s shutting, and he must shut without anyone’s opening. And I will drive him in as a peg in a lasting place, and he must become as a throne of glory to the house of his father. And they must hang upon him all the glory of the house of his father, the descendants and the offshoots, all the vessels of the small sort, the vessels of the bowl sort as well as all the vessels of the large jars.
“‘In that day,’ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies, ‘the peg that is driven in a lasting place will be removed, and it must be hewn down and fall, and the load that is upon it must be cut off, for Jehovah himself has spoken [it].’” Isaiah 22:20-25, NWT
