The WD Flower of Life
Updated: Mar 2, 2021
Wondering why the Wovid Diaries logo resembles a flower? The logo was inspired by one of the oldest symbols in history - the Flower of Life.
The symbol is common in many regions around the world – across societies, religions and cultures. The Flower of Life is believed to be the basic template for everything in existence since all geometric forms can be found within it. It is therefore referred upon as a sacred geometrical combination where circles are being repeated and overlapped in an equal radius distance. Referring to the symbol as sacred indicates a belief that there is intelligence behind its creation.

The Flower of Life consists of 19 circles with an equal distance from each other. Its smaller unit, “Seed of Life” contains six circles intersecting at a point, with a seventh circle centered on that intersection (see below image). The Flower of Life is believed to depict how all life comes from one singular source - represented by the circle in the middle of the pattern.

The oldest finding of “overlapping circles” pattern has been an artefact in an ancient Assyrian temple in current Northern Iraq and is estimated to originate from 6-7th century BC. Ever since, the Flower of Life is re-occurring across all societies throughout time – including in today’s world through popular culture and the New Age movement. The mystery surrounding the Flower of Life enhances with the belief that there is a secret symbol hidden within the Flower of Life symbol – the most significant and sacred patterns in the universe.
The Flower of Life symbolizes creation and reminds us of the unity of everything and that we are all built from the same blueprint. Hence, this symbol is considered to symbolize the universe and the interconnectedness of everything.
The purpose of Wovid Diaries is to connect women across borders, to highlight our shared experience during and beyond COVID-19. Therefore, our symbol – the flower - is the smallest unit of the Flower of Life. It also symbolizes the group of women behind the creation of Wovid Diaries – the golden color for the founder and the remaining five leaves symbolize each co-founder.
