Holy Spirit Symbols - Fire, a Dove, and More

There are many symbols of the Holy Spirit. When he came at Pentecost there was a loud noise, tongues of fire showed over the heads of the disciples, hence the color red is attributed to him. By a miracle, the disciples were speaking in tongues.

The Holy Spirit is also shown as a dove, cleansing and refreshing water, a breath of fresh air, a gentle wind or breeze, a cloud, a gentle rain, and symbols of life, love, and fruitfulness.

He is the gentle breeze that fills the sails of our boat to keep it in the right direction on the waves of life to the port of heaven. He is the shining star to give us direction during the dark night.

And when the storms of life seem to go against us, and we can't see the star, he is the one who brings peace inside, and gives us hope.
