What do those arrows mean?

"Six Arrows" of CHP, which symbolize:

1- Popularism
2- Revolutionarism
3- Republicanism
4- Secularism
5- Nationalism
6- State-ism

actually the six arrows aren't CHP's six arrows, but ataturk's six arrows. i know people use those two words pretty much synonymously (CHP-Ataturk), and i also know that during ataturk's time there was only one political party, chp, and that was the party he was in. but the people in the party didn't get together and make up the six arrows, ataturk himself put them together (as well as putting the party together). sorry, i know this is a really small differentiation between the two. almost like symantics. but there IS a difference.
