U+2629 CROSS OF JERUSALEM
U+271D LATIN CROSS
U+2720 MALTESE CROSS
U+2721 STAR OF DAVID
all figure in Masonic symbology.
But I'm guessing you might be referring to the calipers
and square (with or without a "G" or an Egyptian eye, with
or without solar rays, etc.), often seen in association
with Masons. Or the three links in a chain (with or without
an eye). Or just the eye itself. Nothing like that is
encoded in Unicode as Masonic symbols.
Although I suppose now that Egyptian hieroglyphics are
encoded, U+1307B EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPH D006 (the eye with
an eyebrow over it) might count, in a way.
And in general, this kind of stuff:
doesn't really constitute candidates for encoding as characters.
