The university’s history traces back to the middle of the 1780s. That time, Abraham Baldwin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, wrote a charter for the establishment of the University of Georgia. However, for the first 16 years of its history, it existed only in documents. The task to establish an educational institution was given to the government. In 1806, the Franklin College was built. It was the first serious building of UG. Now it’s known as the Old College of UG. The logotype and the seal appeared a bit sooner, and their main task was to represent the university in the events, meetings, et cetera.

The seal of the university represents three main details: a ring featuring the name of the university in Latin and the year of its foundation; an ‘Et Docere Et Rerum Exquirere Causas’ Latin motto, which can be translated into English as ‘To teach and to inquire into the nature of things’; and an arch with three columns and a guardsman. On this arch, we can see four words, playing an important role for the university: ‘Constitution’, ‘Justice’, ‘Wisdom’, and ‘Moderation’. There is also a pattern of many dots and rectangles, serving as the outline for the whole seal.

It was a combination of a modernized circular seal, drawn in a minimalistic manner, with just a black arch on it, and a red serif lettering, placed under it and separated from the emblem by a thick red horizontal line with the lightweight slanted “1785”, the year of the University establishment, written on it in white. The whole composition was completed by a thin black underline.
