THE STORY OF OUR SYMBOL PART 1 : Jan Hus”

This is the first of two talks given by the Rev. Geoff Usher about our symbol, the flaming chalice.

The Unitarian symbol is usually referred to as the “Flaming Chalice”. Some people prefer the name “The Chalice and Flame”.
It comes in many sizes and shapes. In Britain, what is often called the “chunky chalice” was adopted by the person who was in charge of General Assembly publications in the 1960s. It is the one with which I was most familiar, and it was the one which I used on my own stationery and for the Sydney Unitarian Church and the Australian and New Zealand Unitarian Association.
