Messiah College¹s visual identity is based on a system of official graphic marks, coordinated to help the public easily identify the College and to promote Messiah's distinctives and visibility among its many important audiences. The images depicted below are the official visual identity marks of Messiah College. To promote strength and consistency—and to protect important trademark registrations—use of these marks should adhere to the graphic standards outlined on this website.
Official Messiah College Logo
In March 2002, Messiah College approved a new logo to serve as the primary visual identity mark
of the institution on its stationery package, merchandise, and all printed and electronic publications. The "pillars and flame" icon represents Messiah College¹s academic and Christian commitments through the following symbolism:
- The three vertical pillars represent the Christian Trinity and the tri-part elements of the College¹s mission statement: "intellect, character, and Christian faith" and "service, leadership, and reconciliation."
- The flame represents both academic and spiritual knowledge,
truth, and wisdom.
- The "M" found in the pillars makes the design unique to Messiah
