What does Pegasus symbolize? The winged horse of Greek mythology is said to symbolize creative genius and a spirit which soars above the ordinary. According to the ancient myths, wherever the winged horse's foot struck the ground, a spring of enchanted water flowed out. And anyone who drank of this water received the gift of divine inspiration and creativity.
Isn't Pegasus the name of a star? It's actually the name of a constellation, or group of stars, that can be seen at night in the northern sky. Again, according to Greek legends, Pegasus served the king of the gods, Zeus, by pulling his chariot, and carrying his mighty thunderbolts. In recognition of his faithful service, Zeus transformed him into stars that would shine forever in the heavens.
