The Pasadena Consistory
31st Degree - Inspector Inquisitor
Though no apron is worn in the Tribunal, there was an apron that was to be worn when an Inspector Inquisitor visited an inferior body. That custom has been dispensed with but the apron is still a part of the history and symbolism of the degree; so it is displayed here. It is of pure white lambskin with a Teutonic Cross embroidered in black and silver upon the flap.
The collar is white and at the point upon the breast is a gold triangle emitting rays with the letters 'xxxi' in the center.
The jewel of the degree is a Teutonic Cross of silver worn with a white watered ribbon around the neck.
32nd Degree - Master of the Royal Secret
The cordon is worn from the right shoulder to the left hip and is four inches wide, doubled, black edged with white on the principal side and crimson on the other. At the point of the principal side is embroidered a red Teutonic cross with a silver double-headed eagle superimposed. On the crimson side, at the height of the heart, is embroidered a Teutonic cross in black.
The jewel of the order is a Teutonic cross of gold with arms frosted. In the center are the letters 'xxxii', surrounded by a green wreath.
The apron is of white silk or velvet, twelve inches square, edged with two stripes of gold lace, each half an inch wide, and an inch apart, and fringed with gold. Between the stripes of the lace is a stripe of black velvet. On the flap are embroidered six flags, three on each side, the lower one blue, the middle one red and the upper one gold. On these, in the center, is a Teutonic cross of gold, and over that an eye of gold, surrounded by two rays. On the cross, a black double-headed eagle, with beak and claws of gold, holding a sword of gold, one claw on the hilt. On the body of the apron is the Tracing-Board of the degree in all the colors. The reverse side of the apron is of crimson silk or velvet. It is tied by a heavy cord of crimson silk.
