The SBHANA’s symbol is the daisy, which represents the challenges of spina bifida and hydrocephalus:
- The heart of the flower represents the brain, which in the case of persons living with spina bifida, is often affected by hydrocephalus
- The daisy’s petals are cloven, thereby representing the various lesions caused by spina bifida and hydrocephalus
- The daisy’s leaf and stem are irregular and depict the unusual form of the spinal cord and backbone of a person born with spina bifida
- The beauty of the flower reflects the beauty of people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus who, in spite of their challenges, live happy and productive lives.
