Symbolism

The domed roof in the Dome of Souls forms an inverted bowl shape, which could hold an Eternal Flame. This would provide lighting effects, which would be particularly evocative at night. It would also form the centrepiece for ceremonies and keep alive, symbolically, the spirits of the men.

The Flame is symbolic of eternal life and spiritual power, unseen ‘energy in existence’. It is a manifestation of the soul. It is proposed to create a double lantern feature: one red and one green, symbolic of the Ship’s Port and Starboard lights.
