What is the meaning behind your company's logo (red triangle with lion)?

The red triangle represents fire, enlightenment, purification, creativity and energy. The black lion is a symbol of authority and command over subconscious thoughts. Our lion also represents wisdom, dignity, courage and justice.

In ancient Greece, lions were identified with Dionysus, Phoebus, Cybele, and Artemis, because myth indicates lions drew the chariots for these gods and goddesses.

In Hinduism, the lion is an avatar (embodiment or personification) of Vishnu.

In Buddhism the Buddha sits upon the lion as a throne of consistency, strength and wisdom.

As a resume, the company's logo represents the uplifting energy of God, manifested in the subconscious mind of humans with dignity and potential to understand Him, and to understand this power that enlightens.

 

What is the meaning behind your company's name (22 Lions)?

In numerology, 22 is related to balance, harmony, adaptability, idealism, expansion, evolution and manifestation of the highest ideals and desires. It is a number symbolizing power and accomplishment. But it also represents the Spiritual Master Builder on the Material plane, God's energy put into form, a vibration that holds with it a great deal of responsibility.

Ancient Alchemists attributed the number 2 to dialectic, a necessary relation between 2 elements leading to conscience, which manifests as well when one of the elements opposes the other, as described by Taoism.

If we invert the first number 2, in 22, we will get the symbol of love, the heart, or an omega - Ω, representing the beginning and the end, as well as perfection. If we then combine two omega symbols opposing one another vertically, we get an 8, which is the symbol of infinity (∞). And now, if we put a second 8 on top of the infinity's symbol, we'll get the same meaning behind the Knights Templar red cross, which is related to the 4 elements of nature - water, earth, fire and air.

Turning this cross 45 degrees to the right, to form an x, and putting another cross at the top, will lead you to the symbol of the sun, and also the flower, represented in medieval times as a rose. And the rose has always been associated with love for the mysteries of life.

That is how the name 22 Lions becomes the representation of a path, uniting love and wisdom, in order to bring conscience (omega or perfect wisdom), the third element completing the pyramid of life, reason why we call ourselves an uplifting and enlightening company.

22 Lions symbolically means Love of Wisdom, Love of Knowledge, Love of Intelligence or, more simply, Philosophia, a word coined by Pythagoras and portrayed throughout history in many deities, such as Athena, Ganesha, Isis, Minerva, and many more.

It was not difficult for us to choose this name, which although abstract to the many, represents a very profound meaning, which is the bringing of enlightenment to the world.
