Ukraine Kyiv Mission Christmas Ornament
This ornament is a great way to remember your missionary and their service during the holidays! The design on this ornament is inspired by the Coat of Arms of Ukraine.
Made out of a lightweight and very durable transparent acrylic, these ornaments will not weigh your tree down and can definitely withstand being dropped by the little ones should they get too curious around the tree. The acrylic is cut into a 4 inch circle and then laser etched with the name of the mission and graphics inspired by the region served.
The design on this ornament is inspired by the Coat of Arms of Ukraine and depicts a stylized trident. The modern “trident” symbol was adopted as the coat of arms of the Ukrainian People’s Republic in February 1918 but the use of the symbol has precedents in seals of the Kyivan Rus. The first known archaeological and historical evidence of this symbol can be found on the seals of the Rurik dynasty in the 900 A.D. Most historians agree that the medieval symbol was not intended as depicting a trident, but rather, was a symbol of the Holy Trinity; it also was most likely a stylized falcon.
Get one for yourself or send a pair out to your missionary and their companion!
