The foundation’s oak tree stands in the foundation garden with a view of the Elbe.
It is the model for The Jung Foundation’s logo, which symbolises the foundation’s basic ideas and goals:
The roots of the foundation are the humanitarian nature of the founder, the trunk stands for its energy, while the Aesculapian snake, the symbol of medicine, serves as a support.
The three branches represent the three prize categories: The first marks the beginning, the second the high point and the third the balance of success of a life’s work in medical research.
The leaves are symbols for the prize winners and the fruits stand for medical achievements.
