Bay-tree

An evergreen plant, and a symbol in Freemasonry of the immortal nature of Truth. By the bay- tree thus referred to in the old instructions of the Knight of the Red Cross, is meant the laurel, which, as an evergreen, was among the ancients a symbol of immortality. It is, therefore, properly compared with Truth, which Josephus makes Zerubbabel say is "immortal and eternal. "
