Calasanz Bogotá, Colegio

image by Ivan Sache, 7 January 2009

"Colegio Calasanz Bogotá" (CCB), founded on 21 March 1949 in Bogotá, was the first Piarist foundation in Colombia. The order was founded in the 17th century by St. Joseph Calasanz (1557-1648), who was declared "Universal Patron of all the Christian popular schools in the world" by Pope Pius XII in 1948. Calasanz founded in 1597 the first free school in Europe, and, in 1617 the "Pauline Congregation of Poor Cleric Regulars of the Mother of God of the Pious Schools" (named after Pope Paul V, who had approved it), which was elevated to a religious order in 1621 by Pope Gregory XV. The Piarists are known as "Escolapios" in some parts of South America, including Colombia.  See: escolapios.org.co.
The flag of CCB, according to a photo and the description available on the CCB website, is horizontally divided green-white-green with the Piarist emblem in the middle.
Green represents the earth and our worldly history. White represents the celeste light and eternal life. The combination of the two colours represents the Piarist educationalist ideal, to reach God through the human life considered with radicality. The flag represents, therefore, the two Piarist educationalist principles, piety and literature, or, God's light and  the human science's light.
The Piarist emblem is made of a yellow sun with the anagram of the name of the Blessed Virgin in the middle and four Greek letters (mu, pi, thęta, gamma) standing for "Maria, Mother of God". The emblem means that the Blessed Virgin is the shield and protection of the students, whose way is enlightened by Jesus, light of the world.

The institutional colours are associated with thought, as the quality and luminosity of gold and the deepness, seriousness and solemnity of blue. The contrast and the location of the emblem in the middle of the flag increases the meaning of the colours, offering a both classical and stunning picture.
The emblem of the university is a sun with eleven rays, surrounded by the name of the university and its motto, "Lumina spargo" (also the name of the university review), all in yellow.

Campestre Marie Curie, Gimnasio Bilingüe

image by Ivan Sache, 3 January 2021

Gimnasio Bilingüe Campestre Marie Curie (GBCMC) is located in San Francisco (Cundinamarca).

The name of GBCMC is a tribute to Marie Curie (1867-1934) to the most important woman scientist of the 20th century, who dedicated her life to research, always for the benefit of humanity.
She was the first woman graduated from the Sorbonne University*, the first scientist woman (and still the only one) to be awarded two Nobel Prizes [Physics, 1903, shared with Henri Becquerel and Pierre Curie; Chemistry, 1911] ; her family is the only one to have been awarded three Nobel Prizes [her daughter, Irène Joliot-Curie, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1935, shared with her husband, Pierre Joliot-Curie].

*This is wrong. Marie Curie was indeed the first woman appointed professor at the Sorbonne, succeeding her husband Pierre, who had been accidentally killed by a horse-drawn car. Her inaugural lecture on 5 November 1906 was widely commented in the media of the time.

The flag of Gimnasio Campestre Marie Curie is blue with a yellow lozenge charged in the center with the school's emblem.

Blue and yellow are the institutional colors, related to intelligence.
Blue predominates in the planet's seas and skies, inviting to the deepness of thought to reach utopias and great ideals.
Yellow transmits energy, vitality, glee, enthusiasm, creativity, aspiration to quality achievements and to produced really valuable results, like the productions of our future researchers and artists?

The coat of arms features open hands, symbolizing social open-mindedness and free and reflexive thinking characterizing the educational community; the hand also guide the development of the thought of the students and trigger their aspiration to knowledge. The atom represents knowledge, not only in the field of life sciences, but also in social sciences and arts.
