Truth and Reconciliation Logo

TRC circle logoThe shape of the TRC logo — a circle — reflects the Circle of Life.  In the Circle, we join together to share truth.

The flames sustain life in the Circle and provide safety and sustenance.  Most importantly, the flames shed light on what needs to be shared in the Circle — the experiences of those affected by Indian Residential Schools.

The seven flames that make up the circle represent the seven sacred teachings: love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth.  The Truth and Reconciliation Commission draws on each of those teachings in the work of truth-gathering, truth-telling, reconciliation, and each TRC National Event is dedicated to one of them.  The British Columbia National Event is dedicated to the sacred teaching of honesty.
