What’s the Difference between a sign and a symbol?



What’s the Difference between a sign and
 a symbol?

Signs
Objects or gestures that express ONE specific message or meaning.
  • For example Stop sign.





Why do we need symbols?

  • Words alone are not enough to describe the desires, fears and emotions that touch us deeply.

  • Words / feelings / ideas that are intangible (hard to describe) are associated with something that is tangible (easily recognized; can be touched).
    • For example a flower can represent love, friendship, beauty or new life.
