What does the brand name Odonate mean?

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