The Onion, A Symbol for the Palestinian Counseling Center !
The Onion was chosen as a symbol for the center because it signifies the individual. From a cursory look at people we can only see the outer skin of individuals. However, if we want to delve deeply into a person's character we have to peel the layers of skin and feelings to see a whole outlook for the individual. This process might prove to be painful for some.
The onion can also represent the root of things, and it also signifies cultivation in Palestinian Folklore.
