Fleur de Lis

The Fleur de Lis, which appears in the centre of the St Aloysius College emblem, is a variety of lily which is often used as the emblem of royalty. It was chosen by St Louis. King of France, as a symbol of dedication, consistency of purpose and strength of friendship.

The belt surrounding the Fleur de Lis on the traditional emblem, is a symbol of the strength of the bond that exists within the St Aloysius College community. The badge was designed in about 1920 by Sr Mary Camillus Murphy, a former teacher of Classics in the senior school. The modern logo does not include the belt.

St Aloysius College Motto

In 1912, St Aloysius College adopted a motto and a school badge. The words ’Loyal en Tout’, incorporated in the emblem, can be translated as ‘Loyal in all’. These words refer to the loyalty each student, as a Christian, should have to God, to others, to the school and to themselves.
