Borders College

Graduation Crest

Graduation Crest

The main feature of the crest is a shield, representing history, establishment and heritage. The shield is split into four sections, alluding to the shires of the region. The ‘B’ and ‘C’ sections are tonally representative of the College’s corporate colours. The green section represents the predominant colour of the Borders landscape. The Saltire element stresses that the region is proudly Scottish. The shield is surmounted by a torch, the traditional symbol of learning and endeavour. Below the crest is a rope in the form of the shires bound together with the gold thread of learning.
