Meet the Noble Osprey: Ancient Symbol of Entrepreneurial Wisdom

Soar back through the ages with me to a time when legends that endured for millennia were born. Long before humans traveled beyond our sight, the osprey patrolled coasts and rivers as the consummate hunter. This magnificent raptor, capable of diving at speeds exceeding 60 miles per hour to snatch fish from watery depths, became an avatar for focus, fearlessness and resilience.

Across medieval European folklore, the osprey was revered as the “King of Birds”. Ancient Egyptians depicted it prominently across temple carvings and papyrus documents. Indigenous tribes from North America to Australia saw the osprey as a master fisherman. And still today this ancient hunter graces four national flags.
