COLLEGE EMBLEM

  • A shield divided diagonally by a bar of gold appears on a maroon background.
  • On the right lower panel a silver star rises and lights up the green hills, the sky being shown in light blue, and on the left upper panel is seen a sheaf of paddy.
  • A golden crest IHS (Iesus Hominem Salvator) with a cross and nails surmounts the shield.
  • A golden palm frond flanks the shield on the left. The motto of the college - Work, Justice and Love - is inscribed in dark blue on a golden scroll.
  • Enshrined Gold, Blue and Maroon stand for the ideals of Work, Justice and Love in the motto. The College professes a philosophy of hard work coupled with a passion for truth and justice in all their aspects and love for all human beings.
  • The sheaf of paddy stands for agricultural plenty which the college aims at by its ideal of rural service. The star stands for a pioneering institution shedding its light on the Nagamalai hills, symbolic of the neighbouring countryside. The Crest (IHS - the name of Jesus) is the emblem of the Society of Jesus, which owns this college. The palm frond stands for the sacrifice of self, made by the patron of the college, St.John de Britto (Arul Anandar) in the cause of Truth and Love.
