Red & Gold with Lotus symbol. The lotus seedling grows from the bottom of a pond sinking its roots deep into the mud, sending up a long stem through the murky water until it reaches through to the sunlight in a splendor of beauty. The lotus serves as a visual metaphor for the spiritual growth of the Christian who is to rise above the muck and sin reaching for the Light of the World.
