Official Concordia Logo

The Concordia University, Saint Paul logo is in the form of a window symbolizing Christian higher education as a window on life. Framed within the window, a cross emerges, which identifies Christ as the center of life. The asymmetrical window and cross reflect that life is not always logical or consistent, but Christ holds all things together. The four complementary colors represent harmony in diversity and harmony in Christ.

  • Cross: The cross portrays our mission to educate students in the context of the Christian Gospel. The Good News of Jesus Christ forms the basis of life and education at Concordia.
  • Quill: The quill is taken from our academic seal and represents our tradition and commitment to academic excellence and the love of learning.
  • Individual: The individual represents our serving the individual student while encouraging their personal development and responsibility the education process. The outstretched arms imply reaching out to others, openness to community.
  • Globe: The globe reminds us of our world community and Christ’s command to teach all nations. It also reflects our concern for enlightened care of God’s creation, which is part of our mission statement.
