Our SNUUC symbol. This ecumenical symbol, this circle of oneness, is composed of the symbols of the major religions of the world. It was designed by Louise Pollard. Buddhhism, which is an offshoot of Hinduism, very much as Christianity is derived from its parent Judaism, is often symbolized by the stylized representation of the Lotus Flower. The Crescent and the Star, ancient Byzantine symbols of Constantinople, was adopted by the Ottoman Turks upon their capture of the city, and now commonly used as a symbol of Islam. The Hebrew Star of David is composed of interlaced equilateral triangles and adopted by Judaism as its symbol. The Chinese symbol called Yin and Yang is the eternal opposition of contrasting and complementary passive and active, female and male, negative and positive principles of the universe. The Crux Ansata or Ankh of ancient Egypt, is the symbol of generation of eternal life, and combination of male and female elements. The Christian Cross is derived from the wooden cross on which Jesus was crucified. A flame within a chalice (a cup with a stem and foot), is a symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith. The Hindu Wheel of Life, symbolizes the endless round of birth and rebirth known as 'samasara,' the cessation of which for the Hindu is tantamount to salvation. The Greek Cross is characterized by arms of equal length, which is often used by the eastern branch of Christianity.
