The central circle represents the Divine Consciousness. The four petals represent the four powers of The Mother. The twelve petals represent the twelve powers of The Mother manifested for Her work.

 -      The Mother,  24th January, 1958.

The four Powers of The Mother are four of her outstanding Personalities, portions and embodiments of her divinity through whom she acts on her creatures, orders and harmonises her creatures in the worlds and directs the working out of her thousand forces.
