The Hegemon’s Cross Badge is a form of the Calvary Cross of Six Squares. It grants the candidate entry into the grade of Philosophus in the Outer Order. The Calvary Cross of Six Squares embraces Tiphareth, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod, and rests upon Malkuth. Also, the Calvary Cross of Six Squares is the opened-out form of the cube, and is thus referred to the six Sephiroth of Microprosopus which are Chesed, Geburah, Tiphareth, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod.
If the badge is painted primarily red, it emphasizes the element of Fire, to which the grade of 4=7 is attributed. If the badge is painted primarily green, it underscores the Sephirah of Netzach, which is also assigned to the Philosophus grade.
Construction: wood and decoupage.
