Hello,

During the MUG meeting at Purchase College, I was asked a couple of times what the Mahara logo stands for. It is a Māori symbol - as Mahara means "to think, thinking, thought" in Te Reo Māori - of the Single Twist.

In contemporary society, the single twist (rauiri) "represents the joining together of two people. Even though sometimes people move away, their journey of life will have their paths cross again. The single figure eight represents the path of life, it is the eternity symbol. (The single twist is different to the double or triple twist in that it refers to individual people, where the double and triple twist refers more to the joining of peoples, or cultures)." Source

Cheers

Kristina
