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 heraldic terms. 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.

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 arduous labors. 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 state. 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!
