About the Logo
At Paul George Global School, we believe that the art of acquiring knowledge is the one way to enter the sea of enlightenment. Hence, our logo is an amalgamation of the traditional values of the Indian system and the modern ideas of facilitating passion through perseverance. The Lotus is associated with Goddess Saraswati – the Hindu Goddess of Knowledge, Wisdom, Learning Arts, Performing Arts, Music and Speech. It signifies supreme knowledge. A beautiful blossomed Lotus flower also signifies purity and energy.
The four petals that form a lotus harp on the four character values of Late Shri Paul M. George – Courage, Compassion, Equality and Integrity, which also form the foundation stone of the management’s philosophy. It also shares the management’s passion to facilitate, inculcate and instill these four values in all the students of Paul George Global School. The colour of each Lotus petal also has been carefully selected to represent the colour of each of these character values.
RED is the colour of fire. It represents energy – it is the colour of COURAGE – the first of the four character values possessed by Late Shri Paul M George. It signifies physical strength as much as it represents mental resolve. Similar to Fire, Courage is a source of energy that drives the ‘world of action’ and facilitates the journey from imagination to fulfilment.
COMPASSION has been represented by YELLOW – the colour of Sunshine. Sun is the eternal symbol of compassion to one and all beings not only living on this earth but also in the larger universe too. Without the Sun and its energy sustenance of any living form is practically unimaginable. Just as the Sun expels darkness from the physical world by spreading its sunlight; similarly ‘Compassion’ is a unique value that shuns sorrow and miseries of the world by its true manifestation.
Treating everyone equally is a rare virtue; possessed by Late Shri Paul M George. It is best represented by the colour GREEN – the colour of Mother Nature. Drawing the analogy to Mother Nature who equally shares all her resources so readily and impartially with all her children. This howering of resources is devoid of any disparity and differentiation. Hence Mother Nature is treated as the epitome of EQUALITY, which is best presented in Green.
Lastly, yet most essentially, Integrity tops all character values existent in the world – it is possibly the most supreme of all virtues that a human can possess. In fact it is often said that there isn’t any virtue as virtuous as ‘INTEGRITY’. A human being with high on integrity is complete in his character and divine in his attitude. Such a regal virtue is symbolized by a BLUE Sky which is Absolute, All-pervading and All – encompassing – which is complete by its wholeness and divine by its inclusiveness.
While the most emphasis in the logo is laid on signifying the union of values in education, the open book is a direct indication that Education empowers and enlightens every student of ours with knowledge. Since the lotus is customarily seen in a pond, the pond here is manifested by the open book, deriving to the fact that values based on knowledge lead to the overall development of a human.
In essence the Logo represents that any student or seeker who has gained Knowledge and has worked in the world outside in organizing humanity and in rehabilitating his generation in the greater values of life – which are defined here as Courage, Compassion, Equality and Integrity, he eternally comes to live in the memory of the world. Such a seeker empowered with these four character values blossoms like the Lotus flower spreading the fragrance of Supreme Knowledge to the world outside.
