FREDERICK COLLEGE COAT OF ARMS
The custom of bearing symbols on shields, hel-
mets, and standards existed as far back as the
tribes of Israel. Heraldic symbols, as we know
them today, developed with the use of armor in
the Middle Ages so that the knights could dis-
tinguish friend from foe in battle. Symbolism was
a vital force in the thought and action of medieval
times. During this period, heraldic symbols were
also used in everyday life by persons who could
not write, so they had to develop some way of
providing the authenticity of various documents.
After the suit of armor became obsolete, the
symbols more and more became an emblem de-
picting the ancestry of particularly distinguished
individuals. Today, nearly all organized govern-
ments, be they large or small, have' symbols for
use on official documents.
,Frederick College is particularly proud of its
official seal which is here presented to the public
for the first time. The description and interperta-
tion of the Coat of Arms is given in simple under-
standable language, rather than in technical
At the top center the helmet represents both
vision and strength of courage. ln the upper right
quarter the ship with furled sails and oars in action
stands for progress with steadfastness. This portion
of the shield is taken from the Beazley Coat of
Arms in which the patee crosses appear. ln the
lower right quarter the crowned heart stands for
the benevolence of the founder of Frederick Col-
lege. ln the lower left quarter the Maltese cross
symbolizes the Christian principles upon which
the College is founded. The lamp in the upper left
quarter is the conventional representation of
knowledge. The lions on either side of the shield
stand for courage and strength.
May each individual connected with the Col-
lege always be guided by the salient characteristics
emblazoned on our Coat of Arms.

The Junior Class of 1960-1961 designed this
ring for Frederick College Seniors. This ring is a
symbol of honor, achievement, knowledge, and
above all, our love of God and fellow man.
The columns which form the circumference of
the dome represent the stately columns on our
buildings. May we always be as strong as these
towering white supports. The Book of Knowledge
with the letters BA. on its pages is symbolic of
the many hours spent in pursuit of knowledge, and
represents the crowning glory, a degree, for our
The school crest is shown with a lion on either
side. The lion is not only our school mascot, but
also the symbol of strength of mind and body, a
quality each of us must earn. Below the crest
is' the year in which the college opened.
Our campus borders on Hampton Roads, the
world's largest natural harbor. This is signified
on the ring by a nautical compass.
A second Book of Knowledge is shown with the
year of graduation. Below this date is the coat-of-
arms of Portsmouth, Virginia, the city in which our
CK COLLEGE RING
college was founded. ln conjunction with this is
the Virginia State Seal. A vast and colorful herit-
age, one in which we have pride and reverence,
stands behind each one of these shields.
The Union and Confederate Flags represent
the famous battle of the Monitor and the Merri-
mac which was fought in nearby waters. This is
a reminder of the scar which our country has borne
since 1862. May we never again become divided,
but stand together as one.
There is a braid connecting the two sides of the
ring encompassing the perimeter. This chain is
the symbol of unity between school, city, and
The objective of the Junior Class in selecting the
design for this ring was to create a symbol of
harmony and unity, and at the same time leave
the graduate with a tradition and beauty of which
they can be proud.
V Frederick College, All Hail!
