Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest Fraternity. Its history and tradition date to antiquity. Its singular purpose is to make good men better. Its bonds of friendship, compassion, and brotherly love have survived even the most divisive political, military, and religious conflicts through the centuries. Freemasonry is neither a forum for, nor a place of , worship. Instead, it is a friend to all religions which are based on the belief in one God.
There have been a number of definitions of Freemasonry, though perhaps the most direct is employed by English Freemasons: “Freemasonry is a beautiful system of morality veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbols.”
The system of morality referred to undoubtedly includes principles with which candidates are more or less familiar before their entrance into Masonry.
Named after Quezon City where it is located. The creation of Quezon City was the consuming dream of President Manuel L. Quezon. He picked the site of the city and did the entire spade work leading to its establishment. When the National Assembly enacted the law (Com. Act No. 502) in October 1939 officially creating the City, the lawmakers named it in honor of the Quezon in spite of his “obligations.” Quezon City officially replaced Manila as the capital of the Philippines form 1948 to 1976.
The “Square and Compass” with the letter “G” at the center, describes the guiding principles of Freemasonry. It is placed at the middle of the logo to signify that it is the heart of Lodge; the gold color represents preciousness of Freemasonry. The insignia at the top of the compass signifies Freemasonry in the Philippines.

A dilemma that undeniably confronts all newly-raised master masons is the admonition which is contained in the third degree “charge” that says:
“As a master mason, you are authorized to correct the irregularities of your less-informed brethren, to fortify their minds with resolution against the snares of the insidious, and to guard them against every allurement to vicious practices.”
