The “mark” in the James D. Rielly Foundation logo is a four leaf clover. According to Irish folklore, the four leaves of the clover represent: hope, faith, love, and luck.

The green in the clover is the same shade of green in the flag of Ireland. The clover represents Jim Rielly's Irish heritage. He often referred to himself as a leprechaun.

Each leaf in the clover is a heart. The single red leaf (or heart) represents the love Jim Rielly had for his community and the less fortunate.

The red also symbolizes Santa Claus and love for children.

Lastly, the single red leaf among the three green leaves, represents Michael Rielly’s Italian and Irish heritage and the continuing of his grandfather’s legacy as Santa Claus.
