The logo of the 12th IFEA World Endodontic Congress depicts the colours of the Indian tricolour flag in the form of a rainbow with the Chakra or Wheel radiating the sunshine of knowledge set on the backdrop of the Shore Temple of Mahabalipuram. The top band off the Indian national flag is of Saffron colour, indicating strength and courage while White middle band indicates peace and truth. The bottom band is Green in colour depicting the fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land. The "Ashoka Chakra" or Wheel of Dharma (Virtue) in the centre of the white band is a depiction of the Buddhist Dharma Chakra, represented with 24 spokes and symbolises the dynamism of virtuous change as there is death in stagnation and life in movement. The Shore Temple of Mahabalipuram (built in 700 - 728 AD) is situated in the outskirts of Chennai and is so named as it overlooks the shores of the Bay of Bengal sea. An architectural marvel, it has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the oldest structural stone temples of South India.
