11 St Jago High School Handbook School Crest The Crest is a shield in Emerald Green surmounting an up-arching banner. The banner is of gold and bears the original Latin motto of the school in black uppercase letters. The banner shall be neither cut nor clipped. The edges shall be straight. It shall be folded under once at each end. The lion on the Crest is representative of the Anglican (Church of England) tradition of the school. The three birds are martlets and are taken from the Coat of Arms of the family of Peter Beckford, the original founder of the school. The lion signifies strength, courage, leadership and royalty. The birds signify the value of hard work, not depending on what has been handed down to you, but building your own legacy and worth. The green signifies hope and fruitfulness, while the gold signifies high morals and values as well as intellectual capacity.
