About the Luther College Logo                                    

Held within the Luther logo are the cross, the circle, and the leaves -- all symbols of Luther College’s reason for being. The cross obviously symbolizes Christ, in whom is found God’s will and design for all people; the leaves attached to the cross indicate the capacity to grow in knowledge an  understanding of the world and its creator.  Many also see the cross and leaves as representing a tree of knowledge. As truth is often represented by a circle for completeness, the circle surrounding the head of the cross refers to the constant search for truth within the Lutheran tradition even while realizing one will never fully hold it on this side of eternity.  The current Luther logo was designed by Judy Swanson of Northfield, Minnesota, who was connected to Saint Olaf College and Camrose Lutheran College in Alberta, for the University campus using the College’s colours of blue and white. The design made its public appearance in 1974. The High School campus later adopted the same logo but used their school colours of black and gold. The goal of the logo for the University campus was to be distinctive from the University of Regina as well to represent the values of the College.
