Spirit of Eight Logo
colors blue, red, yellow and white represent the four magnetic directions:
Yellow for east - the beginning,
the sun rising, birth and innocence, new life starts each new
Red for south, for the strongest
time of the day, prime of life, enlightenment, warmth and
White for north - for
wisdom gained through winter stories, knowledge and acceptance,
cleansing, purifying, strengthening power
Blue for west - the setting of
the sun, a time to rest and to regroup, readiness for rebirth
The four equine are Peruvian Pasos. These horses represent
honesty and power, calmness and compassion.
History With Horses
Different types of Celtic knots make up the centre, the cross
piece, and as well as the perimeters of the circle of horses.
With Celtic Knots
we cannot see a beginning or and
end, and therefore we are reminded of the timeless nature of our
spirit, infinite cycles of birth and rebirth, or an unbroken life
The knots repeat the number eight. The red and yellow portion
of the logo represent a number eight as does the blue and yellow
The outer perimeter is the hoop that holds it all together.
