“Unity in Diversity” Logo

: December 22, 2018 1:58 pm : News

“Unity in Diversity”  What your logo says

The Federation’s proud tradition of connecting with one another began in 1868 with founder Jane Cunningham Croly, a professional journalist from New York City.  In 1889, the official motto became “Unity in Diversity” by Sorosis President, Ella Dietz Clymer at a meeting of 61 clubs.  In 1892, a pin with the rising sun was chosen to identify each member.  In 1920, International Prsident, Alice Ames Winter updated the member to what it is today.  the logo illustrates the crusader’s shield, signifying enlightenment, emerging from the darkened world, represented by a black center,.  The band encircling the center signifies eternity: a fully risen sun on a field of blue symbolizes purity.  For constancy, bluesurrounds the letter GFWC and the motto “Unity in Diversity”
