I dunno where this falls so the admins/mods can do whatever they like to this thread :)

I'm looking for the different school colors combinations, especially from teams in the "other" leagues (NCRAA, CUSA, etc.)

If someone can give me the exact hue (like navy blue instead of the generic blue) or the hex equivalent it'll be better. ;D

Ateneo used to be navy blue and a silver hue of white before the present royal blue and white. I think it has to do with the Marian colors.

^ Medyo matagal na nabaon ko lang. It is regarding our school color and the monicker (which is also a color).

UP Figthing MAROONS ;D

According to the Wikipedia article (though I consider it with a grain of salt), Maroons refered to maroon colored slaves of Caribbean who fought Spanish colonisers from enslaving them back (they freed from the colonisers). I think its more of an afterthought.

Sa hymn pa lang na "UP Naming Mahal", andun na yung salita na "Luntian at Pula" (Green and Red from the original version). Significance for me? Green scenery of Diliman (or Los Banos) and Red for the "activist" tradition. Nakadesignate din ata na red at green ang official color (Forest Green and Maroonish Red) pero di ako sigurado dito.

Napansin ko din na di pala exclusive yung paggamit ng COLOR MONICKERS. Look at the International Football team. The 2010 World Cup Champion Spain is called "La Furia ROJA" (Raging REDS). Their BASKETBALL team is called "Roja".
Eto pa mga examples:

France- "Les Bleus" or "The Blues" (Basketball, Football, Rugby)
New Zealand - Tall Black (basketball), All White (football)
Italy- Azurri or "The Blues" (football)

From Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Beda_Red_Lions

San Beda College adopted the Red Lion emblem from the ancient Scottish/English heraldic symbol, the Red Lion Rampant. The school, named after the Venerable Bede of England, naturally chose the heraldic symbol of the ancient Scots/English for courage. It has been said that the Judeo-Christian roots of the Anglo-Saxon world was preserved by the Benedictines during the Dark Ages through faith and courage. Pope Benedict XVI himself openly declared that the Benedictines saved Europe's Christian roots. San Beda pays tribute to the courage of the Benedictine monks by adopting the Red Lion, the symbol of courage in the Catholic tradition and in the land of St. Bede. It has to be noted that the Benedictines are a key part of the history of Great Britain itself.

On July 31, 1940, Fr. Sergio Martinez OSB, inspired by English tradition, coined the moniker “Red Lion” for the school. Red is the color of courage, of a warrior and a martyr. The lion on the other hand represents dominance, the King of the Jungle.

In the old heraldic tradition, combining RED with the LION symbolizes dauntless courage, bravery, strength, ferocity, valor and magnanimity in victory. In its ancient and traditional form, San Beda's Red Lion is actually the Red Lion Rampant of Scotland which eventually became a prominent English heraldic symbol.

Blue And White

The Ateneo has adopted the colors of Our Lady as its own school colors. The school colors are therefore signs of the Ateneo’s devotion to Mary and its commitment to become, like her, a constantly true and faithful servant of the Lord.

Marian blue, ultramarine, is the purest, most brilliant, and most enduring of blues. It is also the rarest and most expensive of pigments, and exceeds gold in value. The color must be extracted in tiny amounts from crushed lapis lazuli, a gem. Medieval artists therefore reserved blue for the robes of the Virgin and the Child Jesus. Mary is also Queen of Heaven and Star of the Sea, and appropriately, her color is also the color of sky and water. Sky blue symbolizes distance, divinity, and dreams; Marine blue, mystery, depth, intimacy. In Mary’s blue mantle, Heaven and Earth, depth and height, the divine and the human come together. No wonder then that blue is the color of faith, peace, and commitment. No wonder then, that the Ateneo has made her Lady’s blue its own.

White is also a color of Mary, conceived without sin and clothed with the sun. It is at once colorless and yet bears the entire spectrum of color. White signifies silence, an emptiness and space that is pregnant with possibility. It is also the color of openness, of truth, of purity, and of hope. In a sense, white is the color of ‘yes’. And it is a color of the Ateneo, because, like Mary, we hope to surrender ourselves to God, so that He may do His work through ours, and so that His will may be made flesh in our lives.

Blue and Red Colors


Blue stands for loyalty and justice. It is the loyalty and justice of the blue-blooded, a loyalty of noblest form and a strong sense of justice which grasps fully well the order of waves. Red is for consummate bravery... that firmness of heart, that staunchness of will, that openness of mind. It stands for the firmness of a martyr who welcomes the heathen's sword across his neck and a hero who saves countless lives at the price of his precious own.

The colors of Letran are blue and red, not red and blue... needs must stay before red... for consummate bravery asks of consummate cause. The martyr marches firmly towards the scaffold only in complete faithfulness to his creed, and the hero offers his whole life only if such whole offertory does justice to a sublime cause... bravery simply for the exquisiteness of spilled blood, which ends in supreme sacrifice for a trivial or for no account, this is not Letran's.
