    4. Two pillars – 
    5. “Plus Ultra” – Latin term for Beyond, signifying that there is more to learn and see. Previously it was written as Nec Plus Ultra, meaning nothing  more beyond, signifying that there was nothing more beyond. We decided to preserve this concept of “more beyond” as a metaphor for continual search for light.
    6. Cloud and fire –  Exodus 13:21 – “By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.” There are some who said the two pillars are said to be represented by the two pillars in front of King Solomons Temple. For our purposes we felt the scriptures teaches a powerful lesson of faith and hope in the power of deity whether in dark or in the light. An important lesson for travellers.
