The Baha’i ring stone symbol is a calligraphic rendering of the phrase “Allah’u’abha”, means “God is most glorious”. It graphically depicts the relationship between God, His Manifestations, and Man. The top bar represents the world of God; the bottom bar that mirrors it signifies the world of man; and the line between them symbolizes the Manifestation of God. The vertical line that connects all three lines exemplifies the Holy Spirit. The two stars in the ring-stone symbol stand for The Bab (who prepared the way for Baha’u’llah) and Baha’u’llah.
