Lancaster University decided to change their logo to make it more prestigious - well, one of our members figured two could play at that game.
Here’s a potential new logo from jmthought, along with his ‘heraldic interpretation/justification’ - let us know what you think!
'Colours: Centered around the university colours of Quaker Grey and Lancashire red, this ties it to the uni and their crest.
The shield remains the same as the new uni logo.
Griffon: The most striking feature and most symbolic. The Loin which represents England is gone as the fandom is not tied to one nation state. Instead a Griffon is used, sort of alicorn version of a lion (wings!!?) Griffons symbolize boldness and the Griffon is breaking free from the crest to show how GALUP breaks free of social boundaries to embrace the show. Thus this is also in the cartoon style of the show.
Red roses of Lancashire are replaced by the cutie marks of Celestia and Luna. This is because we come from many counties and even countries. Loyality is too Celestia and Luna…
These two also flank the crest, not only is this a way of tying it to our official logo but also it maintains the heraldic theme. Celestia and Luna where the first show Alicorns and their presence indicates the age of the society in their choice over newer characters. in heraldry the Unicorn is corage, virtue and strength. The Pegasus inspiration, genious. Alicorns are a mix of these two… they’re colours are adjusted to keep to the overall theme.
The river of lancaster remains to indicate our location and break up the crest.
The book (knowledge manifestation) remains but pouring from it is the elements of harmony. The elements you know but the fact they come out the book shows there is more to uni than academic learning but also friendships.
The scroll reads the full name of the society.
In the background is the old logo fading out. This is because this logo is so iconic of the uni and associated with the society. It remains lingering, still reaching towards the sky. It’s also fitting as we meet under (near) the spires of the chaplaincy it’s based on. It also ties the crest together serving as a passive focal point.’
I will never not reblog this gif set whenever it comes across my dash.
