What does the Odonate brand name mean?

The name Odonate comes from Odonata which in French means dragonfly, as can be seen from the brand's logo. For BioFootWear®, this little insect with its transparent wings and three pairs of legs represents the very essence of the brand: nature, ecology, independence and simplicity.
