What does the logo of the Pakistani Celiac Society represent?

The logo of the Pakistani Celiac Society was developed with the theme of a gluten-free diet.

The green crescent and star symbolize Pakistan, as they are part of the national flag. A branch of wheat represents an example of a grain that contains gluten. The red line is used for a STOP sign and implies prohibition. In summary, the logo signifies that gluten-containing foods are not allowed in the diet of individuals with celiac disease in Pakistan.
