CrestCollege Crest:

The College Crest has the cross fleury and the horse-shoe in azure and argent in alternate quarters. The horse-shoe is taken from the family coat of arms of the Kostkas, to which family St. Stanislaus belonged.

One of his ancestors invented the spiked horse-shoe, which gained a valuable victory over the Russian Cossacks. The engagement took place across a frozen river. The Polish cavalry were enabled easily to rout the enemy, whose horses floundered and slipped, whilst their own horses had a firm grip on the ice.

The Kostka family was permitted to put the horse-shoe on its shield in commemoration of the event. The spikes on the shoe have now been transformed into crosses.


Our motto, “Aeterna non Caduca", was one of the sayings of St. Stanislaus.
