Ever wondered what the Emblem of the International Brotherhood of Magicians REPRESENTS?
The background of this emblem represents the world. The figure is Mercury, the messenger of the ancient gods and a magician. He carries a wand in his left hand. At the bottom, the letters I.B.M. are joined to indicate UNITY and COOPERATION. The oak leaf denotes strength, while the two acorns represent the Eastern and Western hemispheres. The hands are clasped to signify the FELLOWSHIP and BROTHERHOOD in MAGIC throughout the universe.
The International Brotherhood of Magicians (I.B.M.), founded in 1922, is the world’s largest and most prestigious organisation for professional and amateur magicians, magic enthusiasts and collectors of magic apparatus. As a member of the I.B.M., you will enter into a magical world of learning, performing and fellowship.
