The Meaning of the Star of Life Symbol
The Star of Life Flag features a single-reverse design of the Star of Life symbol centered on a white background. First introduced in 1972, the Star of Life symbol is now an emblem of EMS units worldwide. The symbol consists of six colliding bars forming a six-sided star. Each of the six points of the star is representative of six core principles of emergency medical services: early detection, early reporting, early response, on scene care, care in transit and transfer to definitive care. Placed in the center of the symbol is a vertical medical staff encircled by a coiled snake—an ode to the staff carried by the Greek God of Medicine, Asclepius.
