Something I didn’t know before. As I am mocking up a site for the DOC new idea for news dissemination, I looked up the college seal. It is round, so I thought it would be a good site icon–that is the little icon that is on the tab at the top of the site.
I searched “Agnes Scott logos” and came across the page on brand identity, a style guide for proper usage of the college logo.
What I found was:
This is something I hadn’t recognized before–that the latin on the seal, the language in one of my favorite works by the college’s acapella group Sotto Voce, is from the bible.
ANNO DOMINI MDCCCLXXXIX / AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE
IN FIDE VESTRA VIRTUTEM
IN VIRTUTE AUTEM
II Peter 1:5
Now add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge
Also interesting: Here is an open listing of our trademark for the seal at the site Justia Trademarks which details our rights for its usage and the date of its update. Although I notice that the “Published for Opposition Date” is listed as 2018, so that probably falls under the umbrella of deferred maintenance.
