Official Membership Pin

The LWML Official Membership pin is composed of interlocking elements representing the past, present, and future. The different textures on each of the interlocking elements symbolize the diverse cultures of the women of LWML. The triangle, representing the Triune God above, connects with the circles which stand for the world and eternity. The point where all intersect is marked with the cross, Christ, as the center of our lives. 

Adopted July 2001

Young Woman Representative Pin

The double links represent LWML women of all ages who are joyfully united in spirit and purpose. While each member is different, in Christ all are linked together, complementing one another’s gifts, talents, and strengths.  

Adopted June 1997 

(Districts are encouraged to send a Young Woman Representative (YWR) to each national convention. A smaller version of the pin is available for YWRs to district conventions.)
