“Shield,” Education Saves the Nation/ “Crimson,” Passion of Youth
The “shield” embodies founder Lee Yong-ik’s belief, “Education Saves the Nation” through fostering talent, which laid the foundation of KU. “Crimson,” the school color, represents vitality and passion, symbolizing KU’s academic tradition and nature.
“Tiger,” Sweep Through the World and Roar to Shake the Earth!/ “1905,” KU’s Beginning as a National University
The Tiger, the symbol of both Korea and KU, represents KU’s spirit of courage, determination, agility and dignity. “1905,” the year of KU’s establishment, highlights its 109-year (and counting) tradition and depth in academic research.
