The Heart symbolizes LOVE.
Red colour of the heart radiates WARMTH.
Reflecting shadow of the heart signifies the SUPPORT for the elderly by various generations.
Candle with light signifies LIGHT illuminating the darkness that the many faces. The light also ERADICATES the fear of growing old.
The burning candle signifies ADDING LIFE to the elderly remaining years.
