The Hawthorn Tree logo was inspired by a 4th century Celtic language called Ogham. Among the Celtic people, trees were considered sacred and eventually 20 different Ogham symbols were created using simple lines carved into wood and other materials. The logo consists of the Hawthorn or Huath ogham with botanicals hanging off of it.
