The logo of The Hong Kong University
of Science and Technology is in several ways symbolic of the institution.
Lyrically we visualize the golden head of wisdom over the open book
of knowledge. Between the arms holding the book can be seen a flask
representing science. Alternatively, it is a transmission tower
representing engineering and technology or communication and management.
We can also see a sun radiating gold, that very traditional Chinese
color, over an ocean glowing with the deep blue representative of
Hong Kong. Supporting these emblems are the three Greek letters
upsilon,psi and tau, that is:
transliterating as UST . The logo entwines many meanings, as does
the University itself.
