The flaming chalice is the official symbol of the Unitarian Universalist
Association and its many member churches. The flaming chalice is made up of two archetypes - a drinking vessel and fire. It
is rich in symbolism as a result. The chalice represents sharing, generosity, sustenance, and love, among other interpretations.
The flame symbolizes witness, sacrifice, testing, courage, illumination and more. There is no single, official meaning of
the flaming chalice. Like our faith, it stands open to new and ongoing interpretation and significance.
