Main logo or Air Bagan, the LOTUS in Myanmar culture
symbolizes purity, and the promise of man to aim for the
highest within himself. This logo, which will be a focal
point of our Corporate Identity, communicates a synthesis of
bold, modern entrepreneurial principles, our aim to be the
best combined with Myanmar culture, which we believe will be
a symbol of achievement for a new era.
The glory of The Lotus
flower in Myanmar is known as the Padonmar Kyar (Nelumbium
speciosum). It blooms high out of lake waters on a graceful
stem and has long been symbol of purity and the ability to
rise to glory. The flowers symbolizes the best in man that
he could achieve for himself, and to proudly hold his head
high like the blossom on its stem. Fragrant and
delicate-looking yet with strength rising high, the lotus
has long been a deep-rooted part of religious beliefs and
culture in Myanmar.
In the old Buddhist text Zi-natta Pakar Thani, it is
recorded that on leaving the palace to start life as an
aesthetic, Prince Siddhartha was offered a set of monk's
robes by a Brahma, a celestial being of the highest order,
who had found them in a lotus blossom. Thus on religious
days such as the Full Moon of Thadingyut or Tazaungdaing,
both festivals of light, robes called " Lotus Robes"
specially woven are offered to Buddha images in pagodas.
Ninety years ago a lady of Inle Lake invented a true lotus
robe when she experimented with fibers pulled from the stem
to weave into robes to offer to her revered Abbot. The
traditional of this lotus fiber weaving still continues to
this day on Inle Lake, and can be found in no other part of
Buddha images are often enshrined on thrones with lotus
motifs, in the same way that the Myanmar kings had one
throne out of the requisite nine carved in mango wood with
lotus designs. The stupas of pagodas have a band of small
and large petals high on the spire called the lotus petals.
On the family shrine, no other flower has a more magnificent
aura than fresh lotus buds offered to the Buddha. One of the
five attributes of a perfect woman is that her breath has
the fragrance of lotus "May you be as fresh as a Padonmar
lotus," is a wish often voiced by elders to the
younger-generation. Indeed, what more could one ask?
