The blessing of “long life” is universally celebrated. At Palolo Chinese Home, the Chinese character for Longevity (shou) has long been used as a symbol. The artist, by adding two brush strokes, has incorporated the Chinese character for people of mankind (ren), and the result is an image of a roof embracing long life – our wish for you. The unbroken circle signifies our mission of continuous care and respect for our kupuna (elders). Logo designed for Palolo Chinese Home by Clarence Lee.
