The New Seal
The circular shape of the seal denotes the infiniteness of Trinitarian education, transcending time, culture and religion.
The bright yellow color mirrors the Trinitarian spirit, his unceasing resolve to bring back more glory to the school and to be actively involved in continuously making HTC as the Home of Stars and Champions.
The white color embodies the Trinitarian’s purity of purpose in his relationship with God, country, community and family.
The green color expresses the hope, confidence and high regard held by the school’s stakeholders, making Holy Trinity College of General Santos City as their second home and a partner for their holistic development.
The six scallops that encircle the seal represent the six founding members of Holy Trinity College of General Santos City. The groove in each scallop symbolizes the depth of their commitment to serve others.
Superimposed at its center is an emblematical triangle that forms the letter “ A “, in grateful acknowledgment to the contribution of the six members of the Albano family of General Santos City, the original incorporators and members of the Board of Trustees of Holy Trinity College of General Santos City, in the field of education. The interwoven lines in the triangle stand for the school’s flexibility in carrying out the three functions of higher education – instruction, research and community extension. It also reflects its recognition of the interconnectedness of the tri-segmented levels of education – basic, technical and higher education.
Meld with the triangle are two olive branches with twenty two leaves. The entwined branches represent the school’s principal founders’ oneness in vision. The twenty two leaves point to College’s goal to offer at least twenty two academic programs in the different levels. The entwined olive branches also form a “U” shape, indicating the school’s aspiration of elevating the status of the College into a University.
At the upper portion triangle are the dogmatic symbols of the Holy Trinity – the eye, the cross and the dove. At its lower portion are a golden lamp and an open book. The open book reflects the institution’s educational resolve, that is, to make learning more reflective and research-focused. The golden lamp takes the form of a human individual, holding a lit candle, signifying his readiness to explore possibilities towards the right direction and become a holistically-developed person.
1984 indicates the year when the school was founded.
Below the emblematical triangle is the map of SOCSKSARGEN region, the main service area of HTC. Surrounding the map is the blue Sarangani Bay, the community’s major source of living and the epitome of the steadfastness and diligence of its people.
The College Mascot is the Philippine Wildcat. Fiercely independent, graceful and beautiful but untamed feline is a pride in the Philippine fauna. Light footed and bright, the Wildcat exudes grace and resourcefulness, which the school identifies with.
White and Green are the colors. White symbolizes purity, innocence, victory and joy; while Green denotes hope, growth, life, immortality and faithfulness. These colors are to be prominently adapted in the school seal ang logo, as well as in other symbols and markings for use in activities and events in which the school is identified with.
