The eagle is an heraldic bird of the first order symbolising courage and determination. The double-headed eagle signifies a man of action, one of lofty spirit. Adopted by a Master Templar in mediæval times and combined with the mythological all-seeing Eye of Providence, its wearer sees all and has an authority over re-birth and immortality. This design, both awesome and mysterious, may bring its wearer righteous Power and Glory.
