About Our Logo
This logo was chosen in 1994 by the Sjögren’s Syndrome group soon after it was formed in Montreal Quebec Canada. It was designed by one of our members.
Our logo is in the shape of an eye, one of the first problems associated with Sjögren’s Syndrome. Dry eyes are the most common symptom. The dove signifies peace, which everyone with a chronic illness actively seeks.
The heart represents passion and love. Many of us have difficulty coping with the health problems associated with Sjögren’s Syndrome. We reach out through the association to comfort and help others. The tear drop indicates moisture needed for the dry eyes and other parts of the body.
