The Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS) is an organization driven daily by its spirit-based mission of compassionate care. With this in mind, the logo used by FMOLHS, Our Lady of the Lake, and many of the companies organized under the Health System is designed with a depth of symbolism not often found in corporate logos.
Central to the symbol shown here is its figurative aspect, composed of the Tau form and element above it. This symbol encourages multiple interpretations: Christian cross, Jesus, St. Francis or a Franciscan Sister. At the same time, the logo’s stark simplicity underscores pure Franciscan ideals—open and accepting, humble and vulnerable. The symmetry and ideal proportions suggest our constant pursuit of spiritual completeness—but a slightly incomplete circle reminds us that we cannot achieve earthly perfection.
In addition, the four quadrants of the logo (made by the circle’s segments) represent four of the Health System’s five core values (reverence and love for all of life, joyfulness of spirit, humility and justice), with the figure in the middle symbolic of the fifth (service).
