    My friend from St. Andrews has a sash but it’s the light blue, like UGLE Craft lodges.
    Always liked sashes...

    That would be St. Andrews No. 25 then, (not that far from me in Fife). I've seen a few like that, but again, the beauty of Scottish Freemasonry is each lodge has a lot of autonomy in deciding things like their ritual and even down to how we dress.

    I'll add a bit to the confusion. Last Saturday I was at my mother lodge. They just got their new aprons. MM aprons where blue bordered white aprons with MB on them (I thought they did that in other Rites), but there were also red bordered white aprons with MB on them. I didn't get to ask what or why, but the officers had the red aprons, the rest blue. This is one of these things I never really tried to figure out.

    That said, in Europe it is fairly common to have Grand Lodge colors and Lodge colors, so a lodge can have a blue and gold border on their aprons and sashes, while another lodge has blue and red.

    In which sense, exactly?

    Someone will post a picture of the Grand Stewards procession or some such and a US Mason will inevitably pop up and say, “Royal Arch!” which is essentially two incorrect statements in one, as the English HRA apron is very different from a US Chapter apron.
