The word pillangó in our foundation’s name means butterfly in Hungarian.

In many parts of the world, the butterfly is a symbol of transformation. Our logo, which playfully depicts a butterfly with extended wings, symbolizes positive change and hope, while the fountain pen, which makes up the butterfly’s head and thorax, symbolizes our focus on education.

The vivid, youthful pinkish purple we chose is reminiscent of the beautiful flowers in Csángó gardens. One flower in particular, the beloved garden cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus), stands out as it frequently comes in vivid pink and is called pillangóvirág in Hungarian, meaning butterfly flower.

The geometric patterned ribbon running vertically at the top of the page was inspired by beautiful traditional Csángó embroidery.
