The symbol of Peace, that of Yin and Yang, the lily – all, are universally popular and well-known symbols, but not all know the meaning and context of origin. Parrot Print Canvas has created an interesting infographic that reveals the background of the birth of these famous signs graphics.

The infographic reminds us that the Caduceus, often incorrectly substituted Staff of Asclepius, is the symbol of peace and prosperity associated with Hermes, Greek god of commerce.

The Eye of Providence, which for many is associated with Freemasonry is actually a sign of spirituality and inner elevation in every religion from Christianity to Buddhist.
