The Flower of Aphrodite is the symbol of the Kinsey Institute. In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, and sexual rapture. Her flower, the red anemone, symbolizes love and the rebirth of spring. The stylized flower comprises six vesica piscii. Aphrodite held the number six sacred for its representation of equilibrium, harmony, and balance.
