The sign in the centre of the Cross

An interposition of two Ancient Greek letter-symbols (X and R - i.e: Xi and Rho) signify Christ.

                                        The Red Cross                                                                    

Refers to the blood shed on the cross of Christ and the atoning significance of it. Colossians 1:20: “to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” (ESV)

                                             The Shield                                                                          

Refers to the shield of faith in Ephesians 6:10-18, in particular vs 16: “In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one.” (ESV)


                                        The Open Book                                             

Symbolic of the Holy Scriptures upheld at BISA: Signifies God’s Word is open and available.

Blue colour surrounding the Shield
and Holy Scripture

Represents the College’s location, by the sea, in Kalk Bay, Cape Town. Figuratively, this also represents the access that BISA has to other parts of the world, not just Africa.
