In August 2009 Hamilton College launched its new ‘bird' logo and branding.  These continue to emphasise the words of 2 Peter 3:18 where there is encouragement ‘to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ'.

The cross weaving through the other symbols reminds us that in Hamilton College the Christian faith underpins all we do. 

The bird is based on a sparrow and is a reference to two passages in the Bible which relate to the idea of God's grace. 

The bird also symbolises freedom - the freedom to be yourself.

The circles relates to the idea of eternity - God is always and forever.

There are two circles to represent divine wisdom and human knowledge.
