A strong symbol of hope and inspiration has been created for WINGS of Hope. Thank you to Maris Cuane for sharing his graphic design skills, resources and time to create the WINGS of Hope logo.
The colours of purple and turquoise represent postvention.
The number of butterflies (5) represents the founding members and their lost loved ones. The butterflies signify their growth, or metamorphosis, through loss.
As the design evolved and changed so did the dynamics of our Committee. Each member learned a great deal about the strengths that each brings to the Association and how together, we can make a difference to those bereaved by suicide. Developing the logo was an important stage in our personal journey and that of the organisation coming together to create a symbol of the range of issues we aim to address in our self harm prevention activities.
You are not alone in your loss.
