The emblem of The Chinese University of Hong Kong is the mythical Chinese bird "feng" (»ñ), which has been regarded as the Bird of the South since the Han dynasty. It is a symbol of nobility, beauty, loyalty and majesty. The University colours are purple and gold, representing devotion and loyalty (purple), and perseverance and resolution (gold), respectively.
The new emblem of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong marks the School's milestone 45th Anniversary. The crown of the "feng" is easily associated with the University's rich heritage.
The final initials of the new emblem, "SCS", signify Success, Commitment to our community and Sincerity. The stylised final "S" is composed of two arcs representing the two poles of the Earth. The joint marks the interaction between the two poles, which reinforces the relationship between CUSCS and society, and underlines the importance of whole-person education. The link between the "C" and "S" further strengthens the core concept of continuing and lifelong education.
