Swindon Coat of Arms

The Unification Church symbol meaning.

The central circle symbolises God whose attributes of love, truth, and life reach or radiate out north,south,east and west to the whole cosmos. Additionally another 8 beams radiate out from God to make twelve directions. The number twelve indicates the twelve types of human character. Historically, the number twelve has been important in God's dispensation; for example, Jesus had twelve disciples.

The significance of the symbol, then, indicates that truth (the Principle) is able to spread out in twelve ways. The outer circle represents the harmony of giving and receiving action, the principle of the cosmos.
The square represents, {God - Father - Mother - Child} this dynamic relationship we call the four position foundation.
