It was an exciting day when we received the letter of acceptance from my son’s present Alma Mater - Duke University in North Carolina.

The shape of the shield is modeled after the Duke family crest with the notched top inspired by the roof of the famous Duke Chapel built in collegiate Gothic style.This crest can be seen at the top of the organ case and a boss with the Duke family coat of arms decorates the ceiling.

A triangle ,the symbol of unity and the Trinity is incorporated in the design.Three vertical bars represent education,religion and health.It seems that upon creation of university insignia ,the concept of health was for the first time visually introduced in an academic heraldry. At least this is what the archival document deposited in the library says.

Not very good heraldry, but if the purpose is identification, this has certainly been successful.  At least, unlike many universities these days, Duke uses its arms on everything.

This is certainly true.  I live only 15 minutes or so from Campus, and I see the shield nearly everyday.

Unfortunately, the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club seems to have gone to a black and white version of the arms where the chevron is per pale green and purple. :rolleyes:
