Davit Aghmashenebeli University of Georgia Heraldic Emblem and Flag

The Coat of Arms of Georgia (Davit Aghmashenebeli University of Georgia) and the flag provides the best of both Georgian-European heraldry traditions, as well as the goals and objectives of the University. Davit Aghmashenebeli University of Georgia shares western values, scientific innovations and achievements of the modern world, but is also based on national roots and traditions. That explains why the image of the Gelati, Virgin Mary Cathedral is in the central part of the university emblem and flag. Gelati is medieval Georgia's largest religious and cultural center called "Another Athena" and "Second Jerusalem". It is also a magnificent sign of David Aghmashenebeli's educational work. The open book on the coat of arms and the flag is a symbol of truth and teaching. In Christianity, the book marks the education of nations, and in Eastern religions it marks scientific wisdom. The university abbreviation "Sdasu" (the name of the University) is written with the letters from the old Georgian alphabet Asomtavruli, which once again proves that the university attaches great importance to national traditions. On the other side of the book, the quill is a sign of spirituality and creative writing. The golden color of the whole emblem and flag marks the highest spirituality and holiness. Thus, the symbol of the Davit Aghmashenebeli University of Georgia clearly expresses the aspirations that the university is based on in the process of educating and upbringing the generations
