The logo of IBHAP is composed of two circles. The inner circle can be viewed as either the world or the Wheel of the World (Dharmacakra) symbolising the movement for Dhamma by Dhamma. Above the outer circle there is a pigeon holding an olive branch in its mouth while flying around the Dharmacakra. This means moving forward for peace and by peace. Below the outer circle, there is a sketch which can be seen as a pair of hands or pigeons conveying the message that peace comes from actions.
The three pigeons in the logo represent the Three Studies: morality, concentration, and wisdom. The one holding an olive branch symbolises wisdom for peace which is the most important. The other two symbolise morality and concentration which are like a pair of hands driving for and supporting peace.
The abbreviations in Thai and English (IBHAP) in the middle between the hands signify the role of IBHAP as an organization that connects peace-driving networks. The character “A” illustrated in a Thai style house with a smile represents the Siamese smile which stems from happiness and inner peace based on Buddhism. The abbreviations are placed above the Thai and English full names to signify the presentation of Thai Buddhist wisdom for the benefit of global community.
