The NCRE logo is the result of significant heraldic research coupled with NCRE's vision of the organization.
The 2 outer rings are simple and clean. The organization's name is engraved within the rings.
The NCRE motto - Education is the Key. In heraldic translation, the motto was usually in Latin. The Latin tradition is, Educatio Est Clavis.
The scroll is the ancient predecessor of the modern day book. It represents knowledge. In heraldic tradition, a scroll is placed at the bottom of the seal, and the organization's motto is engraved therein.
The torch represents the light that knowledge brings to darkness. The seal includes two torches. One represents the teacher, and one represents the student.
The shield is the heraldic symbol for defender or protector. In this case, NCRE is the protector or defender of the members. NCRE is included at the top of the shield.
In heraldic tradition, olive leaves represent peace. In the field of medicine, olive leaves represent healing. As such, this is a very fitting symbol for reflexology.
