The badge of Wah Yan is divided into four quarters by a Cross in red, under which are the words that the Emperor Constantine is said to have seen in the sky the night before he fought his greatest battle.
The words are in Latin and the phrase “In Hoc Signo Vinces”, which means “In this Sign, you shall conquer”, is our school motto. In the name of Christ, we shall conquer ourselves.
The five stars set in the blue represent “Ng Wah”, the district from which Mr. Tsui Yan Sau, Peter, the founder of Wah Yan, came. They also embody the ideas of Virtue, Wisdom, Sportsmanship, Cooperation and Elegance as well as Benevolence, Justice, Courtesy, Wisdom, and Faith.
The blue symbolizes the sea as Hong Kong is surrounded by sea. The Cross in red reminds us of the great love of Jesus Christ for all men since He shed His blood for us on the Cross.
