The Rosicrucians are very interesting because if you read the manifestos one of the most curious things that they state is that the symbol of this secret college is what? A red cross on a white background, which is also the corporate logo of the Templars. Their other symbol being a red rose on a white background and that is very symbolic because the whole expression ‘Sub Rosa’ or ‘Under the Rose’ meant, at that time, that these were matters that were to be kept secret and confidential. It was the jargon of espionage of the day, so even that symbolic expression is an indicator that these manifestos aren’t only referring to a secret college but to a secret intelligence agency.
