ABOUT THE SYMBOL OF THE WORLD CONGRESS
Joma Sipe at work in his studio
1. The Portuguese artist and Theosophist Joma Sipe was inspired by MERLION. The Merlion (Malay: Singa-Laut) is a well-known icon of Singapore depicted as a mythical creature with a lion's head and the body of a fish. It is widely used as a mascot and national personification of Singapore. The logo is not a replica of Merlion.
2. Two of our founders H.P.B. and Henry Olcott (HSO) were LEO.
3. The lion logo shows strength, leadership, but also fairness thus portraying great majesty.
4. The colors used were adopted from an original 1885 book publication Theosophy, Religion and Occult Science written by Henry Olcott. Coincidentally those colors link directly with Singapore and its Chinese background and history.
5. All Theosophical symbols are inserted.
