Company Name Origin
The Green Knight is a medieval literary and mythical character who dared to question the honor of the Knights of the Round Table by challenging the legitimacy of their reputation. Sir Gawain faced off against the Green Knight on behalf of the Knights and found himself involved in a life or death test of his adherence to the Code of Chivalry.
The story of Sir Gawain & The Green Knight (SGGK) is a British literature classic, estimated to have been written in the late 14th century. Although literary scholars have dozens of SGGK theme theories, the story’s impetus is the Green Knight forcing the Round Table to self-assess their commitment to the very principles of character and conduct which form their identity. Sir Gawain’s triumphs and failings in his contest with the Green Knight led to a rethinking and realignment of how the Knights would move forward following the ordeal.
The story illustrates that regardless of the great things we aspire to, our true success lies in our willingness and capacity to actually do great things, even in the face of internal doubt or external challenges – and, that it is not easy. It requires courage, and a focused commitment to our mission.
