The College Seal

The shield within the seal of Goucher College bears against a gold ground, an open book inscribed “I. Thess. Ch. V. Vs. 21” (Prove all things, hold fast that which is good). Below, in the lower left quarter, against a blue field, are three lilies; in the lower right corner are the arms of the state of Maryland and the arms of the family of Lord Baltimore.
