The Paulo Coelho and Christina Oiticica Foundation, with its seat in Geneva, Switzerland, was established in 2014. In 2018 the Foundation merged with the Paulo Coelho and Christina Oiticica Charitable Foundation.
The symbol that is used in the Paulo Coelho & Christina Oiticica Charitable Foundation logo was originally designed by Christina Oiticica in the late Seventies. It became widely known as the Warrior of Light symbol, ever since Paulo started using it on his official website and in his works as a representation of the Warrior of Light. This is the story of how the logo came about.
