Symbolism of the Official NCEA Logo
The base of this stylized lamp of learning represents all Catholic educators. From the witness of their lives emanate the flames of the gospel message, faith community, and Christian service. As they pass the flame of learning to others, they share the warmth and light of Christ. In their ministry, they are constantly gifted and challenged by the Holy Spirit, symbolized by the highest flame. The overall circular design of the logo reflects the universal love of the Father, and the concern of Catholic educational ministers for the entire world community.
