Why A Bumble Bee...as the Logo?
Immortality, rebirth, industry, order, purity, soul, chastity,
messengers between worlds, secret wisdom
In dreams, the bee represents approaching death: one's soul is buzzing
off. They have often been viewed as brave, industrious, clean,
politically harmonious, and aesthetically gifted; these qualities
provide extensive fodder for symbolic representation. The bee
represents perfect community, and although it is weak in body, it is
strong in spirit and wisdom.
In Egyptian culture, the bee is associated with royal hierarchy
because of their monarchic organization, industry, creative activity
and wealth. In Paradise they were the 'little winged servants of God'
only changing to brown after the fall, and, with Eagles, are the only
animals that have access to heaven.
