İstanbul Erkek LİSESİ Emblem

This post have a special meaning for me, because it is about review of my highschool emblem. Maybe the second one have some problems, but all of the three versions of it are beautiful.

Old Emblems of İstanbul Lisesi

The first school emblem was designed in around 1915/1916. It incorporates the first letters of İstanbul Sultanisi, elif and sin in Arabic, a rose, the star, and the crescent. It was modified by the famous Turkish sculpturer Nejat Sirel (IS ’07) in 1917. Sirel’s design did not include the rose, whose symbolic meaning, if any, is still unclear.


The final form of the school emblem was designed by Orhan Omay (İEL ’37) and has been in use since 1970.
