The Symbols

 

Several symbols created and used by Bruce Lee during his life have been integrated in this into one consolidated design. The design is composed of three elements:

1) Bruce Lee’s Core Symbol: a yin yang with arrows and Chinese characters

2) Bruce’s “Lee Jun Fan” stone chop

3) Bruce’s “Loong” or “dragon” representation

Loong

Bottom Right of Design

The “Loong” character at the bottom right of the design is Bruce Lee’s personal artistic rendition of the Chinese character “Dragon”. Bruce Lee was born in the year of the Dragon and the Hour of the Dragon and was nicknamed the “Little Dragon” from childhood.

Finally, the square look of the overall design for the symbol connotes the building blocks of his artistic development. It is the structure upon which to build – the foundation through which art lives on. The Chop and Loong positioned at the bottom symbolize that, at its roots, the totality of Bruce Lee’s legacy stems from the traditional to the individual forms of self expression. The unity of the three elements shows us that if the foundation is maintained, inspiration will be sparked within the individual to work toward their own personal liberation.
