This symbol represents flowing water. Water implies a source of life with the ensuing benefits. By using this symbol, the image of water is likened to the roots of culture in general. Furthermore,  flowing water evokes images of fluidity and life force. These images are indicative of Nichibunken's learning style, pursuing dynamic studies of Japanese culture. The three lines of the symbol, the centerline connecting the other lines, denote the interdisciplinary and international exchange sought by Nichibunken.
