Corporate identity

Our logo, 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

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 symbolises 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 rishing 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 Siddahta 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 fibres pulled from the stem to weave into robes to offer to her revered Abbot. The traditional of this lotus fibre weaving still continues to this day on Inle Lake, and can be found in no other part of the world.

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?
