Emblem of Doshisha
The emblem of Doshisha, which consists of three triangles, is a stylized Assyrian letter meaning a nation or a land. It was designed by Doshisha alumnus Hangetsu Yuasa, a poet and a scholar of the Ancient Orient. Hangetsu was a professor of Theology at Doshisha University when the emblem was made. Since then, it has been interpreted as a symbol of Doshisha’s educational philosophy aiming at the harmony of three elements of education: intellectual, moral and physical educations.
