Borjgali (Sun Tree, Georgian Swastika, Georgian eternity symbol)

borjgaliThe borjgali appears on Georgian money and official documents and is a pervasive symbol of national pride. It consists of an ancient, seven-winged solar wheel, often shown rising from a symbolic tree of life. 

The solar wheel is similar to wheels found throughout Europe, especially in Norse and Iberian art.  Similar symbols are found in Armenian stonework.


In modern usage, the tree’s upward-reaching branches purportedly symbolize hope; the lower branches, the past.
