What is the purpose of the emblem?

12 years ago

    The emblem of the NHS is the keystone and flaming torch. As the keystone is the binding element of an arch, on which associated parts are dependent, so are the structures of our system dependent on the virtues which are represented in the NHS and the firm basis of education
    The light emitted by the torch is light which guides all NHS members to higher ambitions for moral and social values. At the base of the keystone are inscribed the letters C, S, L and S which stand for the four basic principals of the organization: Character, Scholarship, Leadership and Service.
    The NHS motto is “Noblesse Oblige”; the colors are blue and gold and the flower is the yellow rose.
