Coat of Arms & Mascot
Coat of Arms
Bay Atlantic University, from its deep roots in the Nation’s Capital, is engaged in bringing radiant knowledge to the Global Community in a spirit of peace, and respect for all; with the deep conviction that the serious pursuit of education will bring down barriers, this way enhancing peace and good will among all Nations.
The Bay Atlantic University Coat of Arms conveys many related, important messages:
The open book symbolizes our strong commitment to continuously improving quality education. The globe symbolizes the Planet Earth and therefore our global reach, diversity and inclusiveness. The blue hatching pattern represents Washington’s Potomac River, this way stating that we are deeply embedded in the Nation’s Capital. The rising sun illuminating the entire image symbolizes hope and new radiant knowledge coming from BAU into the world. The cherry blossoms branches that evoke the cherry trees around the Tidal Basin reinforce the notion of a harmonious and peaceful endeavor carried out through education. These cherry blossoms remind us that it was here in Washington that the foundations of a new peaceful order –from the UN project to the World Bank– were established, after the end of WWII.
The Bay Atlantic University motto, “Peace through Education”, gives clear scope and meaning to the entire set of symbols.
Bay Atlantic University chose the dolphin as its mascot. From time immemorial, in many cultures’, dolphins have been celebrated and admired by humans.
Dolphins are unique creatures that strive to achieve in any habitat they choose or are thrust into. They are highly intelligent mammals that have achieved perfect adaptation as sea creatures.
Just like dolphins, we in the BAU Community strive to be Adaptable, Agile, Intelligent, Fast, Sociable, Curious, and Friendly to all.
