Seal of the Colegio

140x140

The Seal bears the Maltese Cross derived from the Knights of Malta, whose pious works earned for themselves a place of honor within the Church. The silver Cross, on a blue and red field encircled by a wreath of green laurels, symbolizes the pattern by which the spirit must grow - the silver purity of true and noble goals alone can triumph over difficulties; victory follows with a wreath of laurels.

The Seal also bears another symbol of the Colegio, her motto: DEUS, PATRIA, LETRAN; which embodies the Letranite's manner of offering deeds - to God first, the Country next, and Letran where his ideals are born.

Knighthood

140x140

The Letranite is personified by the Knight who goes through rigid tests from being a Page to a Squire when his heart and soul are many times tested for purity before he qualifies for the most trying challenge and then granted knighthood. As a knight, he carries the shield and the lance to protect not his body but his ideals as he fights for them with a pure heart.

The shield which carries the Silver Cross on a blue and red field encircled by a wreath of green laurels symbolizes the pattern by which the spirit must grow - the silver purity of true and noble goals alone can triumph over difficulties; victory follows with a wreath of laurels.

Blue and Red Colors

Blue stands for loyalty and justice and Red is for consummate bravery. The colors of Letran are Blue and red, not red and blue, symbolize that the nobility of the mind and the spirit should come before the bravery and courage are fired by a cause.
