UUCBG Flaming Chalice

The Flaming Chalice

The flaming chalice has become the symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith.

The flame, among the oldest religious symbols, often represents the flame of spirit.

The chalice, a wide-lipped stemmed cup, is historically associated with communion and, to many, represents the religious community.

The overlapping circles, for many people, represent our Unitarian and Universalist heritages.

The lighting of the flame unites us in worship and symbolizes the spirit of our work.
