New Crop Circle ‘The Flower of Life’ discovered in Gloucestershire, UK – April 19, 2015

A new crop circle discovered in Macmillian Way, Nr Tarlton, Gloucestershire, UK on April 19, 2015 symbolizes ‘The Flower of Life.’

The Flower of Life is the modern name given to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, that are arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon.

The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter. However, the surrounding circles need not be clearly or completely drawn; in fact, some ancient symbols that are claimed as examples of the Flower of Life contain only a single circle or hexagon.

The "Flower of Life" can be found in all major religions of the world and there are many spiritual beliefs associated with the Flower of Life.

The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest to date example. It is carved in granite and may possibly represent the Eye of Ra a symbol of the authority of the pharaoh. (See image left).

It is considered by some to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.

The most common form of the "Flower of Life" is hexagonal pattern (where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter), made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial circular arcs, enclosed by a large circle.
