Who we are

That’s why our name is Zonta

This composed symbol became Zonta’s emblem, signifying a group of successful business executives and professionals who are loyal, honest, and trustworthy, inspired to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy.

What appears to be the letter “Z” is actually the Sioux symbol for “ray of light,” “sunshine” or “flash of radiance”- and so “inspiration.”

This Sioux symbol means “to band together for a purpose” or “to stand together”- in a word, “loyalty.”

This symbol is the Sioux way of saying “to carry together.”

This symbol is the Sioux symbol for “shelter.” An indoor organization. 

The square is neither exclusively Sioux, nor is it exclusively Native American. It is the symbol for “honesty” and “trust.”
