Winged Disc – What Does it Mean?
Throughout history, humankind has held the most prominent celestial body of the Sun as a deeply meaningful symbol. In ancient Egypt the Sun was a symbol of great significance, and this is where we came upon this imagery to represent fundamental concepts that are embodied in our approach to service.
Ancient Egyptian Winged Disc
The ancient symbol is thought to be composed of the disc of the sun, with coronal plumes extending from it as viewed at the time of a total solar eclipse (and thus being seen as the wings), with the swirling solar gases seen as the uraei (the hooded cobras). And, as the myth of Horus explains, this was placed over the doorways of the Egyptian temples for protection.
Over the ages, this icon has evolved stylistically and in symbolization to have a “modern” interpretation, including the following concepts:
- Victory, Flight, Following Intuition, Inspiration, Success
- Wise guidance on a personal level
- Ability to rise above problems or difficulties
- A time for reflection and planning
These qualities influenced us to the use the Winged Disc as our name and logo symbol.
The Winged Disc reflects the personal and public attributes that we strive to attain.
