The logo of Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital, Bengaluru, is a flower of the Ashoka tree - ‘The Blossom.’ It symbolises an amalgamation of devotional integrity, spiritual purity and liveliness.
According to mythology, Lord Mahaveer Swami, the twenty-fourth Tirthankara had renounced the material world and devoted himself to meditation. After spending twelve years under the Ashoka tree called Jonesia Ashoka, he attained enlightenment. As per Jainism, this tree is considered to be sacred.
Ayurveda clearly describes this tree as being one that possesses immense medicinal properties that contribute to the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. ‘The Blossom’ is thus a fitting choice for the logo, which is one of the vital fragments of the BMJH brand.
The colour of the flower ranges from yellowish-orange to deep red, representative of turmeric and vermilion respectively. ‘Turmeric’ indicates medicinal properties and healing power whereas ‘Vermilion’ denotes devotion and eternal life. This is a reflection of the ideals of our brand which is exclusively health-centric.
