BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The oldest public school in the country has a new logo.
The Boston Latin School announced the new slate of logos in a release this week.
"This redesign effort’s objective was to create a visual identity that renews pride in Boston Latin School, the nation’s oldest public school founded in 1635, the Wolfpack athletics program, as well as the Boston Latin School Association founded in 1844, and help drive consistency of communication to both internal and external constituencies as well as the public," the school wrote.
They feature purple graphics and type, and do away with the old logo, designed in 2003, which featured Romulus and Remus suckling on a wolf—an allusion to the story of the founding of Rome and the school's Latin-teaching legacy.
The school said that old logo will remain for official purposes, and will still be featured on diplomas.
