Is there a murky secret hidden in these postage stamps?

Click to enlarge.

This old King George 6th stamp looks harmless enough, doesn't it? But give it a click it to enlarge it and look again...what's that lurking there ...under that innocent-looking dove of peace? Is that a set square and compasses? But isn't that an old freemasonry symbol? Surely it can't be? Well, it surely is.

It's no secret that the royal family has had, and still has, long and strong links to freemasonry (via the Duke of Norfolk) but why that set square and compasses symbol? And why on a British stamp?

Do I smell a conspiracy theory brewing? Or is there an innocent explanation?
