The central line of three leaves represents the image of young leaves growing up, and also expresses the three basic principles of love for humanity, exploration, and contribution. The V shape at the bottom represents a hand that gently embraces all, representing a hand that protects precious life in the field of medicine. The green and yellowish green colors symbolize the brightness of life and fresh hope.
