As the historic and cross-cultural symbol of honor and excellence, the laurel branch is a perfect fit for Sigma. In our logo, it’s placed above our name and modified by breaking into three individual leaves at the end of the branch. This doesn’t just provide the dot above the “i”; it carries symbolic meaning as well: Scholarship, Leadership, and Service are the foundational principles of Sigma. The three-leaf composition is also a reference to the history of the name Sigma Theta Tau, which was taken from the first letters of the Greek words for Love,
Courage, and Honor: “Storgé,” “Thárros,” and “Timé.” The selected typeface, which is a traditional yet modern serif, unifies the logo and communicates history even as it looks to the future. The crest is not going away. It will continue to be placed on sacred membership materials, such as your membership certificate, coat of arms plaque, and graduation stole. While the crest is no longer in the official logo, it will continue to symbolize our enduring values of love, courage, and honor.
