The pi symbol, with the arrow and the triangle, adopted by the NEA Executive Committee in 1966, combines the legacy of the past (the pi symbol is the ancient Greek word for education) with new direction for the future (the arrow across the pi symbol). The spherical triangle, serving as a background, represents the mutually supportive programs of local, state, and national education associations to advance education. The design symbolizes the forward thrust of education through a united teaching profession.
