The Icon of Pentecost
The Descent of the Holy Spirit in the form of "tongues like as of fire" upon the Apostles is commemorated by Christians on the 50th day after Pascha, or on the 10th day after the Ascension of Christ. As a liturgical feast, this day is correlated by the Church with the Feast of the Holy Trinity (Trinity Sunday). On the following day, on a Monday, they celebrate Monday of the Holy Spirit (Trinity Monday), and All Saints' Day is observed on the first Sunday after Pentecost.
THE ICON OF TRIUMPH OF ORTHODOXY
The word <TRIUMPH> means the victory over iconoclasm (7 - 8 century, when the Church was one, undivided,) the word <ORTHODOXY> means the right and lawful way to glorify God by venerating (not worshiping!) icons. By doing this, one venerates the inner (mystical) image of the depicted holy personage and subsequently the Image of God which man was created in. It has nothing to do with contemporary understanding of this word as the name of certain earthly institutions, like, for example, Orthodox Church.
