What is a Fez

the_fezThe Fez

The red fez with a black tassel, the Shrine’s most distinctive symbol, has been handed down through the ages.

It derives its name from the place where it was first manufactured — the holy city of Fez, Morocco.

The fez was chosen as part of the Shrine’s Arabic (Near-Eastern) theme, around which the color and pageantry of the Shrine are developed.
