The College Crest represents the sun, which is the source of light and heat, symbolizing ‘Truth and Love’ which is the motto of the college. The figures and the words on the crest inspire and motivate us to excel under the patronage of St. Francis de Sales, who is renowned in history for his vigorous fight for truth mingled with an ever loving heart. From the sun emerge the five principles of guidance, symbolized by the human hand as:

  • “Upright Character” by the outstretched finger pointing upward.
  • “Loyalty to Authority” by joined hands tilted forward.
  • “Devotion to Duty” by the clenched hand.
  • “Friendly Comradeship” by the handshake.
  • “Social Service” by the palms opened downwards.

These five principles formulate, as is well known the five main characteristics of those who live up to the expectation of the College.

The three colours of the college flag, blue signifying the achievements of the mind, red denoting prowess in sport and physical fitness, and white standing for integrity and nobility of character, also find a place in the college crest.
