The Notre Dame Academy Logo
Notre Dame is translated into English as “Our Lady”, the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The color blue, which is the predominant color in the logo, is traditionally symbolic of Mary, Queen of Heaven.
The pure white lily has also long been closely associated with the Virgin Mary. In early paintings, the Angel Gabriel is pictured extending to the Virgin Mary a branch of pure white lilies, announcing that she is to be the mother of the Christ Child.
The lily branch also symbolizes purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life, in honor of all we instill, hope and pray for our children in a Catholic school setting.
The cross within the branch serves to reinforce our Catholic identity.
Baskerville is our preferred font for marketing materials and school communications. Baskerville is widely available in Microsoft Office applications.
Resizing the Logo
** Please use caution not to change the proportion, or "stretch" the logo when resizing it in a Microsoft Office or other file. To constrain proportions of images in applications such as Word or PowerPoint: first save the file, then insert the logo file into your document. Select the logo image, place your mouse pointer over one of the corners, hold down the shift key (command key on Mac), and click and drag the corner to proportionately resize.
