THE CIRCLE AND THE TRIANGLE
The circle stands for the whole world of A.A., and the triangle
stands for A.A.'s Three Legacies of Recovery, Unity, and Service.
Within our wonderful new world, we have found freedom from our
A.A. COMES OF AGE, p. 139
Early in my A.A. life, I became employed in its services and
I found the explanation of our society's logo to be very
appropriate. First, a circle of love and service with a
well-balanced triangle inside, the base of which represents
our Recovery through the Twelve Steps. Then the other two sides,
representing Unity and Service, respectively. The three sides of
the triangle are equal. As I grew in A.A. I soon identified
myself with this symbol. I am the circle, and the sides of the
triangle represent three aspects of my personality: physical,
emotional sanity, spirituality, the latter forming the symbol's
base. Taken together, all three aspects of my personality
translate into a sober and happy life.

Thank you Newby. I always knew the triangle was unity, service and recovery, but I never knew that there was meaning to the actual circle.
The circle meaning the whole world of AA.
I was listening to a speaker, Earl H. and he talks about the triangle, and how unity, service and recovery is so important so it has been on my mind, and in my thinking lately.
He said it was an ancient symbol for mind, body and spirit also.
I love that...
Within our wonderful world, we have found freedom from our fatal obsession. I take that as by doing the elements of the three, I can be free.
