One WORLD Garden’s logo mark is inspired by the triple spiral and modified so its three sections can more easily communicate and equally share with one another.
The Spiral is the oldest symbol used in spiritual practices and is seen as a universal pattern of growth and evolution that is repeatedly found and reflected in the natural world.
As an enduring and sacred symbol the spiral reminds us of life’s ever evolving and ongoing journey.

Spiral patterns occur naturally in plants and natural systems.
They are found in architecture, art and landscape design where they have inspired forms and ancient symbols. And they have been studied by mathematicians like Leonardo Fibonacci, who’ve tried to understand order in nature.
Spiral galaxies are some of the most beautiful residents of our universe.
Nearly 70% of the galaxies closest to the Milky Way are spirals. New research finds that spirals are self-perpetuating, persistent, and surprisingly long lived. (Image: NASA)
The spiral lies embedded in One World Garden’s story and design
The mandala and spiral are seamlessly embedded in the One World Garden and play a major role in its narrative and the overall spatial form of the garden and its pathways. Mandalas are concentric diagrams of circles and squares representing the interconnection between the inner-self and the universe or cosmos. Symbolically, the mandala’s center is both a finite and infinite point —a destination, path and portal or icon of unity between inner self and universe.
The mandala’s outer extremes signify the outside world and emanate out in the four cardinal directions. The sacred geometries connecting the mandala’s outer edges and its center point are concentric diagrams forming a pathway between outer and inner worlds.
