Lingnan Logo

        The mountain, river, trees and path illustrated in the University logo
        each symbolise a profound principle: The White Cloud Mountain
        depicts the highest aspiration in life; The Pearl River represents the
        wide dissemination of Lingnan education; The lychee trees - with ripe
        fruit hanging in clusters - represent the commitment to realise the
        precept "For God, for Country, and for Lingnan"; The path represents
        the road to the future by virtue of hard work. The "vibrant-red" and
        "iron-grey" colours of the logo symbolise integrity and loyalty.
