Explanation of the Junior Odd Fellow Shield (see above)
• The Pyramid: Reminds us of the land of Pharaoh, where Joseph, as a young boy, attained great heights.
• The All-Seeing Eye: Reminds us of our belief of the Supreme Intelligent Being, the Creator and Preserver of the Universe.
• The Three Links: Reminds us that through Fidelity, Honor and Loyalty we are to unite and elevate the character of our members.
• The Silver Drinking Cup: Reminds us that through all our trials we are to remain patient, obedient, and tolerant.
• The Six Leaves: divided in halves, reminds us of the twelve tribes of Israel, who from lowly slaves, rose to become a great nation.
The watchwords of the Junior Odd Fellow degree are Honor and Fidelity. The symbolic colors of our degree are Silver and Dark Blue.
The teachings Of the Junior Odd Fellow Lodge Degree are taken from the Holy Bible, and the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors was selected to develop and encourage a generous, helpful and fraternal relationship among members and to promote an understanding of higher purpose of life, true knowledge of government, and genuine patriotic spirit.
