The lodge was formed in 1869 in No. 11 District as an off-shoot of LOL 111. In previous
years the "Scarlet Crown" played a prominent role in local unionist politics and
at one stage had five Unionist MPs as members.
Banner Unfurling - June 2014
Scarlet Crown LOL 1919 dedicated a new banner in the Orange Hall on Thursday 26th
The new banner is the lodge's first in 25 years and is the first full size banner
to be painted by local Orangeman Bro Stephen Rodgers. The banner features local scenes
including the Town Hall, Scrabo Tower and the cenotaph around the main feature of
a scarlet crown. The banner's reverse depicts William III and his troops at the Battle
of the Boyne.
Following the unfurling, the lodge were joined by visitors from other lodges in the
District on the banner's first parade around the town, which was led by the CLB band.

Bro. Paul Heron was our WM this year and brought many guests, brethren and sisters,
over with him from Scotland including Bro Ian Wilson, Grand Master of Scotland.
Paul was the entertainer and compere at the Ulster Scots evening in the Queen’s Hall
on Friday 8th July. He also ran two very successful evenings for all the brethren
and sisters in the Orange Hall on 11th and 12th evenings. The Lodge would like to
thank their WM for all his hard work and kindness.
