THE SCHOOL cREST
The Central Figure is Of St. Anselm ,the Patron of the school. He is
shown in the attire of a bishop with an open book in his hands. St.
Anselm besides being one of the most illustrious Archbishops to occupy
the See of Canterbury was a renowned Philosopher and Doctor of the
Church keenly interested in the Education of Youth.
The Franciscan Coat-Of-arms:
To the right of St. Anselm, you find in the Franciscan
Coat-of-arms i.e. the hand of Christ crosses the hand of Francis, with
the cross standing between. The emblem is to remind us that the
Institution was Founded by the Franciscan Fathers of the Capuchin
Order and of the traditions they have established.
The Ashoka Wheel:
On the left of St. Anselm lies the Ashoka Wheel, denoting that with the
advent of Independence the College had been entrusted to the sons of the
soil, the Secular Clergy.
Our Lady: The top portion
of the Shield bears the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Immaculate Conception), denoted by the letters I and C on
either side. The picture is a reproduction of the beautiful stain
window of the adjoining Cathedral, under the shadow of which the
Institution has grown to its present stature. The background of deep
blue ,denoted by the horizontal lines together with the white of the
lower half form the School Colors - Blue and White.
The Supporting Animals: The
shield is supported by a unicorn on the right and a lion on the left to
remind us of the singleness of purpose in achieving our ideals and the
Courage to live up to them.
The Motto: Beneath runs the
School Motto: "Deo Amabiles et Hominibus". It means pleasing to God
and to man. Such is also the aim and purpose of St.
The Star: The star
surmounting the crest reminds us that the School is situated at the foot
of the mighty "Taragarh" the "Fort of the Star", the famous "Garh Beetli"
of Rajput poems and closely connected with the immortal Prithvi Raj. The
mountain raises its rugged summit rigid above the School. The star also
suggests to us that star which long ago led the Kings of the East to
the Knowledge of the one true God. May St. Anselm's school serve the same
