The Grand Chapter of OES for the State of New York is one of the most illustrious jurisdictions for OES history in America. Their archives are filled with rare Eastern Star treasures that are protected ardently by the Grand Chapter. So, zealous of the history, the Grand Chapter chose to invert the OES emblem right side up to distinguish it from every other Jurisdiction. They also do not have membership in the General Grand Chapter OES. The reason being is connected to the reason they chose to invert their emblem.
