Peace to Ukraine

  • Xavier Segers

I was truly inspired by the brave and strong Ukrainian people during the ongoing Russian invasion. I wanted to spread a positive message of hope that could be shared through social channels. Transforming their national coat of arms, Princely State Symbol of Volodymyr the Great or colloquially called the tryzub into a dove of hope. Let us hope that things de-escalate quickly with no more bloodshed. A big thank you to Eastern Europe for helping and welcoming all in need.

The modern "trident" symbol was adopted as the coat of arms of the Ukrainian People's Republic in February 1918. The design has precedents in seals of the Kyivan Rus.  Most historians agree that the medieval symbol was not intended as depicting a trident, but rather, was a symbol of the Holy Trinity.
