In Church hymns the mother of God is often compared to the burning Bush (burning thorny Bush) which saw Moses on mountain Horiv (the Outcome, Chapter 3, verse 2). The similarity between the burning Bush and the Mother of God is that of the old Testament as Bush remained unharmed during the fire engulfed her, and the blessed virgin Mary, who gave birth to Jesus Christ, before Christmas and after was a Virgin. The icon of the burning Bush depicted in the form of an octagonal star consisting of two sharp quadrangles with the concave ends. One of them is red in color, reminding him of the fire that enveloped Moses saw Kupina; the other is of green color indicating the natural color of the Bush, which she kept, enveloped in burning flames. In the middle of an octagonal star, as though in Kupina, depicts the virgin with the preeternal Baby. At the corners of the red quadrangle depicts a man, a lion, a bull and an eagle symbolizing the four evangelists. In the hands of the blessed virgin ladder, lean the top end to Her shoulder. The ladder means, that through the virgin on the ground the Son of God, bringing into Heaven all who believe in Him.
