Medic Gladii – This patch shows a classic medical symbol. So let’s take a look at the components. First the serpent and staff in the middle. In Greek mythology, the Rod of Asclepius, also known as the Staff of Asclepius is a serpent-entwined rod wielded by the Greek god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicine. This symbol has continued to be used in modern times. It is commonly associated with medicine and health care. The CADUCEUS, is the traditional symbol of Hermes that features two snakes winding around an often winged staff. It is often mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine instead of the Rod of Asclepius, especially in the United States. The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with trade, eloquence, trickery, and negotiation.


Now let’s look at the swords. Wikipedia says: Gladius (Latin: glădĭus) was one Latin word for sword and is used to represent the primary sword of Ancient Roman foot soldiers. Early ancient Roman swords were similar to those used by the Greeks. The word gladius acquired a general meaning as any type of sword. This use appears as early as the 1st century AD in the Biography of Alexander the Great by Quintus Curtius Rufus. Gladii (swords) were two-edged for cutting and had a tapered point for stabbing during thrusting. So perhaps these represent the tools of healers. So if you are in the medical field and are looking for a great 3D medical patch to show your affiliation, this is an excellent choice. It is a hi-relief 2.3”x2” hexagon PVC patch.
