The Lotus Project_logo_image_color_vecto

“This lotus shows the blossoming of a new hope filled life from darkness into light. The darker blue in the center represents the emotionally dark individual. The bright blue petals represent healing, while the pink heart represents love and joy. The yellow at the base of the heart symbolizes suicide loss.”

-Gloria Cook (Graphic Designer)
