Symbol

Symbol Capella university
Among the symbols of the University of Capella, the most striking is the symbol of a high mountain with a sharp peak. Even after changing the logo, the mountain has been preserved, but has become more recognizable, and now is represented by two peaks. At the same time, it also means the necessary efforts that must be overcome on the way to the tops, and two relevant areas of training.

Emblem

The central element of the emblem of the University of Capella is the letter C, located in the heraldic structure. At the heart of this structure is a triangular shield with a sharp base. The original emblem was a symmetrical structure with a rhombus of irregular shape inscribed in the crest structure, as well as two five-pointed stars in the upper part of the structure.
After receiving the status of the university, the educational company changed the logo, rejecting the form of the emblem in favor of a round emblem whose central space is divided into 4 parts, in which the letters “C” and “U”, two stars, and also the double mountain peak.
