Some Fraternal Orders in Sweden


These Orders are NOT appendant bodies within Swedish Freemasonry but entirely separate Orders.

They all have degree systems.

Not all of them where founded in Sweden.

Svarta Örns Orden (Order of the Black Eagle).Founded to protect protestants. The Black Eagle was a ship.

W6. Founded 1851 in my hometown, Gothenburg. Has lodges all over Sweden but not outside.

WF. Founded 1865 in Stockholm and has lodges in many cities.

Bifrostorden (The Order of Bifrost, the rainbow bridge of Norse mythology). Founded 1925 in Örebro and has lodges in several cities.

Bifrosrorden works in 10 degrees (last one honorary): I:Freedom, II:Friendship:III:Knowledge,IV:Hope, V:Fidelety,VI:Love,VIITruth,VIIIBeauty,IXWisdomX:? (X can only be held by 30 brothers)

Götiska Förbundet (The Geatish Society). Founded 1815 and has its seat in Gothenburg. It works 6 degrees.
