  1. Why do Royal Arch Masons wear a sash?

The Grand Chapter laws of 1778 ordered ‘the ribbon or sash of the order to be worn on the left shoulder’. The ribbon or sash was considered to be the decoration of a court official, or the stole of a priest that had been worn on the left shoulder and ‘symbolically’ represented the yoke of Christ. In the early Chapter the sash was sometimes worn on the right shoulder, because they originally believed that the sash was a sword belt that had to be worn this way to allow the sword to be easily grasped by the right hand. If this tradition is accepted, then we are dealing with a knightly degree probably of French origin. There is also a strong suspicion that those wearing the sash on their right shoulder were Modern masons, while the Antients wore it on the left one. English Grand Chapter regulations of today require all Companions to wear a crimson and purple indented sash over the left shoulder, passing obliquely to the right, with a silk fringe at the end.
