About our logo

The Guild’s logo is the spiral, an ancient universal symbol that signifies the expanding of life, i.e. birth and growth. It is reflected in nature in the circles of tree rings, the growing snail shell, the whirlwinds and ripples on water, as well as the spiral growth of plants. To Guild members, it signifies the expansion of their own knowledge as they learn with each new Bowers exhibit and the joy that comes with an ever-increasing ability to serve the community.
