The power of the Sunflower
Sunflowers are joyful things and I think it’s great that they are now being used as a discrete way of indicating someone may have a hidden disability. Not all people with hidden disabilities need extra help but wearing a Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard discreetly indicates that someone in your party or you, if you are alone, need additional support or just a little more time. It has become the established symbol for hidden disabilities in the UK and has been successfully introduced to several major UK airports, supermarkets, railway stations and sports venues. There are also t shirts, pins and ribbons. It is now spreading across the world through the many airports that are adopting it
If you want to be involved as a business or a charity then you can contact the firm that designed and makes them . If you are an individual then you can get them from airports and charities and buy them from the Hidden Disabilities Store.
Solopreneur Growth Club uses the sunflower because it has been a symbol of success and growth for 3000 years. In China it’s very auspicious, symbolic of long life and a good luck charm for new businesses. (See more about the sunflower and how you can use it to measure your current state here)
