St. John's National Academy of Health Sciences

Emblem

The EMBLEM of this Institution portrays a man lying with sickness being helped to rise, and given renewed life by Christ, who is signified by the Cross, on which He died, and which is a symbol of love.
The motto of the emblem, HE SHALL LIVE BECAUSE OF ME, links this Institution with the XXXVIII International Eucharistic Congress held in Bombay in December 1964, of which it is the Chief Memorial. The motto is a constant reminder to our Staff and Students that they are God's collaborators in their care of human lives.
The colour scheme: The cross is WHITE, signifying purity of spirit; the body of the man lying down is BLUE, signifying aspiration towards heavenly things; and the background is GOLD or YELLOW, signifying the flame of knowledge.
