Shriners

The photograph below shows a common symbol of the Imperial Council of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (AAONMS), also known as the Shriners. The symbol shows a crescent and star hanging from a scimitar. The Shriners, founded in 1872, have Freemason origins. See the Freemasons category on the right side of this page.
