The University of Asia and the Pacific seal (or logo) consists of two major components: the coat of arms and the wordmark. Both are needed to present a consistent visual image of UA&P.
The UA&P Coat of Arms has four elements:
- Star – the star represents a guiding star because we cannot count on our own human efforts alone. It is a representation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Stella Orientis (Star of the Orient), to whom the oratory of UA&P is dedicated.
- Galleon – the galleon represents the University’s aim to be a bridge of mutual understanding and cooperation between Asia and the rest of the world.
- Sea – the sea represents the Pacific Ocean, the body of water on whose rim lie the countries that belong to the Asia-Pacific region.
- Unitas – the motto of UA&P is Unity: unity between faith and reason, unity between religion and life, as well as unity with each other. It reflects the commitment of everyone in UA&P toward the pursuit of wisdom, which necessarily entails a synthesis and, therefore, a unity of life.
The wordmark is the standardized graphic representation of the name of the University. It is in ITC Galliard Std font. There are two versions of the wordmark: the UA&P acronym over the full name of the University, and the other is the full name over the subunit’s name.
