School Badge

School Badge

The design of the school badge dates back to 1911. The design includes the motto in Chinese and English. The colours – red, yellow, blue, white and black were taken from the five-barred flag used in Republican China from 1911 to 1928. According to tradition, each colour represented one of China's five racial groups, the red bar at the top standing for the Han people. The design itself is full of symbolism, with the circle representing both the world and the perfection of God, the Creator. The pentalpha or five-pointed star is known as the Star of Bethlehem, and represents Jesus Christ, the hope of the world. The pentalpha can also be viewed as a person standing in the Eastern attitude of prayer, with arms outstretched. At the heart of the badge is the Cross.
