You may have noticed a mama owl with her little one popping up throughout our marketing, our website and on our social media channels. We’d like to introduce you to our new Baton Rouge Moms mascot, mama owl! We have yet to solidify a name and we hope you all will help us out with that, but first we want to share why and how we chose her.
Introducing our new Mascot! Why an Owl?
We chose the owl as our Baton Rouge Moms mascot because we think she symbolize several important qualities that mothers embody.
Owls are a symbol of Wisdom – The reason owls are associated with wisdom in Western culture is that the owl was the special bird of the Greek goddess Athena, the clever warrior goddess after whom the Greek city Athens is named. Owls are often portrayed as teachers and nurturers, incidentally, they are excellent, protective mothers.
They have tremendous Vision – Not only can they see deep into the dark, but they can turn their heads for a complete 360º view. We all know moms have eyes behind their heads. We see all, we know all.
Owls are a symbol of Strength – Owl species are well-known for the defense of their nests and young. Moms are strong and brave women who have been known to fight polar bears, punch sharks and kiss boo boos like nobodies business. Mothers daily learn about strengths they don’t even now they have. And as a community of moms, we are stronger together than we are alone.
Once we found our mascot we searched for a local artisan who could bring our mama owl to life, our plush mascot will make her way around town, attend events and even leave fun surprises around Baton Rouge for moms and kids to find.
