S G I   Flag



SGI flag was suggested by president Daisaku Ikeda

at the First Women’s Division Meeting in 1988

commemorating the Invocation Day (28 April).


- The red colour signifies warmth and harmony ,

- the yellow signifies glory and seeking mind, and

- the blue colour stands for peace and KosenRufu.



S G I   Logo


SGI offical logo is a stylised Lotus Flower      

signifying the Lotus Sutra.

There is no specific colour assigned to the 8-petalled Lotus.



Traditional Buddhism Logo


                  In Traditional Buddhism, the 8 - spoked “Wheel of the Law” is used

 
   as a symbol for the “Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Paths”         

        which was the first teaching of Shakyamuni Buddha.


It is notable that Traditional Buddhism takes the first teaching of the Buddha as its symbol, while SGI takes the final teaching of the Buddha, the Lotus Sutra, as its symbol.



Traditional Buddhist Flag


The flag was designed by Mr. J.R. de Silva and Colonel Henry Olcott in 1880,

to commemorate revival of Theravada Buddhism in Ceylon (Sri Lanka),

and was adopted by the World Buddhist Council (in 1952).
