Authors: Communications, Office of
Keywords: Logos;Seals;Traditions;1984

Publisher: Memphis, Tenn. : Rhodes College
Abstract: The seal was amended in 1984 to reflect the name change to Rhodes College. Style three has four colors-red, black, blue and gold. The black shield bearing the red Saint Andrew's cross represents the shield of faith. At the intersection of the cross is the Bible, the anchor of Rhodes' curriculum. The raised right arm in hte upper section of the shield represents the Masonic origin of the College. The owl, on the left, is the Greek symbol of wisdom. The "bush that was burned but never consumed," on the right, represents the presence of God. The lotus flower is the Egyptian symbol of immortality and the intertwined oak and laurel beneath the shield and emblematic of strength and victory.
