Coat of Arms

The coat of arms first designed by Fr. A. Neut, underwent a few modifications over the years. The top red half contains the monogram of the Society of Jesus, the three Greek letters iota, eta and sigma which form the first letters of the name of Jesus in Greek capitals IHS. The cross over the ita and the three nails are also from the monogram and symbolizes the manner of Christ’s death. The lower blue half contains the outline of white snow mountains. Diagonally across the centre is the white bar with the motto – SURSUM CORDA which means “Lift up your hearts”. The scroll around the batton of the escutcheon contains the name and location of the college.
