FNU launches logo
Fiji Times - 28 January 2010
FIJI National University launched its logo at the Ministry of Education's headquarters-Marela House yesterday.
The FNU logo would become a respected and highly regarded symbol of education and intellectual endeavour, Education Ministry's head Filipe Bole said.
"The design itself represents the united vision of the FNU. The logo has clean, contemporary lines, but retains a flavour of our cultural identity and our Pacific environment," Mr Bole said.
"The blue colour is not only traditional shade for education institutions but is also the colour of the Pacific Ocean that links our island nations."
The six institutions, Fiji College of Advanced Education, Lautoka Teachers College, Fiji Institute of Technology, Fiji School of Medicine, Fiji School of Nursing, and Fiji College of Agriculture have been formed into five colleges, as part of FNU.
These five are College of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies, College of Engineering, Science and Technology, College of Humanities and Education, and College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
"In our symbol, the solid circles on the line may be seen to represent droplets of knowledge and wisdom, which become larger in the continuum of knowledge, represented by the circle," Mr Bole said.
The logo indicated unity within the university and with its purpose, he said.
Fiji National University's new logo was designed and developed by Oceanic Communications.
