YMI Logo signifies its Internationalism besides the emphasis of YMCA logo ie the essential unity of a human being – Mind, Spirit and Body. We have encompassed that Internationalism in our Logo while adding to it the symbolism of Peacock Feathers. As you all know, Peacock is the Indian National Bird and hence represent the Indian Nationalism in our Logo.
In general Peacock is a beautiful animal and represents pride, love, and luxury, or a desire to get every charming and worthy thing in life. The Peacock also indicates nobility, longevity, immortality, generosity, and compassion.
In Celtic culture Its colorful feathers represent the rays of the sun and the beginning of the new day. Also Peacock has a connection with “Hindra”, the God of rain and thunder, whose waters give a new look and life to the earth.
Peacock in your dreams is a wonderful omen, as it foretells success & luck. In Native American culture it means self-confidence, self-esteem, dignity, refinement, knowledge, pride, and beauty. In Hinduism, Peacock remains in Lakshmi’s presence, the goddess of good compassion, fortune, and fortitude. In Christianity Peacock symbols indicate eternal life and the Resurrection because Peacock sheds its own feathers every year, and they grow back to their glory and grandeur. To summarize, our Regional Logo represent, Pride, Glory, Grandeur, Compassion, fortune, fortitude, Knowledge, Refinement, Self Confidence and Self Esteem besides the YMCA logo’s emphasis. So let us work together to proclaim these virtues through our actions in the community.
