Since 1997 the Seventh-day Adventist Church has used a standard international logo.
The Open Bible: The Bible forms the base of the design and represents the Biblical
foundation of our beliefs. It is portrayed in a fully open position suggesting a full
acceptance of God's word.
The Flame: This shape is formed by three lines encircling an implied sphere.
The lines represent the three angels of Revelation 14 circling the globe and
our commission to take the gospel to the entire world. The overall shape forms
a flame symbolic of the Holy Spirit.
The lines at the top of the design suggest a continued upward momentum symbolizing
the resurrection and ascension to heaven at Christ's second coming, the ultimate focus
of our faith.
The Cross: The symbol of the cross, representing the gospel of salvation,
is positioned in the centre of the design to emphasize Christ's sacrifice, which is
the central theme of our faith.
It is also significant that the Bible - representing the law, and the flame - representing
the Spirit, come together at the cross.
Official Church users may purchase the official logo pack, complete with CDRom, disks,
manual, and video. Check with your Conference or Union Communication Director for details.
The Church's logo was created by graphic designer Bryan Gray, a graduate of The Design
School in Pasadena, California. Bryan, a former business professor of art and design at
Montemorelos University, now runs his own design business in Boise, Idaho. To learn more
