The SAAP Logo

saap_logo_resizedThe open book points to the Word of God and his guidance that underlies all pastoral care.

The circles point to the counsellor and the care of others – the caregiver embraces others with love and care.

The star symbolises Christ’s light that drives out the darkness of life’s problems.

The colour blue symbolises purity, cleanness and wholeness, which is the result of pastoral and clinical care.

Vertical (resized)The colour green is a symbol of growth, life, health and compassion.

The colour blue is a symbol of faith, calmness, serenity and spirituality.

The colour purple is a symbol of wisdom, nobility and spiritual fulfilment.

The open hand symbolises “caring” and the circle represents “wholeness”.

The blue circle turning into purple, symbolises “wholeness” leading to “spiritual freedom”.

The purple flying dove symbolises “the healed spirit set free”.

The befitting slogan “Healing through Caring” will be used with the new logo.
