The stars represented the pioneering role they played in industrializing and globalizing lighting. The waves were radio transmissions, signifying their major contribution to the first global wireless communication platform. The circle came later, symbolizing the world and the people. The new shield is modernized for use in this digital age while retaining its heritage of stars and waves. The stark symmetry was replaced with curvier lines in the waves and in the top edge of the emblem. The word indicating the brand is Bold.
