Meaning of the Lingnan Logo
The mountain, river, trees and path illustrated in the University logo each symbolise a profound principle:
- The White Cloud Mountain depicts the highest aspiration in life;
- The Pearl River represents the wide dissemination of Lingnan education;
- The lychee trees - with ripe fruit hanging in clusters - represent the commitment to realise the precept "For God, for Country, and for Lingnan";
- The path represents the road to the future by virtue of hard work.
- The "vibrant-red" and "iron-grey" colours of the logo symbolise integrity and loyalty.
Broad the plain before us reaches,
Far the mountains ever guard us,
College mother, calm thou standest,
Wondrous land our fathers gave us,
In thy care bright years are bringing
To thy life, these years were giving
In the years and strife before us
Courage, then, as joy thou'lt give us, Alma Mater Hail!
