Our Symbol

The Wisdom Knot, or Nyansapo, is a revered West African symbol that traditionally represents intelligence, ingenuity and patience – all qualities that we greatly value and strive to embody in our professional approach.

An especially revered symbol of the Akan, this symbol conveys the idea that ”a wise person has the capacity to choose the best means to attain a goal. Being wise implies broad knowledge, learning and experience, and the ability to apply such faculties to practical ends.”
