Banner

In the academic year 1987-1988 the banner was manufactured. When the banner was designed, there was one major limitation: the banner should be a one of a kind banner and should not be confused with another banner. This was done by combining a number of aspects related to Pharmaciae Sacrum.

First, P.S. is a study association from Groningen, this can be seen on the banner. The city of Groningen has an official weapon since 1819, namely a shield of gold, with a double headed black eagle with spread wings and legs, having a shield of silver on their chest with a green crossbeam. This weapon can be clearly seen in the banner of P.S.. However, in our banner one of the heads of the double headed eagle has been replaced by Aesculapius (reference to the god of medicine), as a symbol for the pharmacy. The weapon of Pharmaciae Sacrum itself also returns on the banner in textual form. The official association name: Groningen's Pharmaceutical Student Association "Pharmaciae Sacrum”, is reflected in all facets on the banner.

Four colors can be observed on the banner. As previously mentioned, the shield carried by the eagle is white with a green crossbeam. White stands for cleanness and purity. Green stands for water and sea. Moreover, green and white are the colors of Groningen. Furthermore, the banner is featured by its beautiful deep blue color. Blue stands for peace, air and sky. The eagle and text are made of gold thread. Gold represents wealth, abundance and mineral resources. Blue and gold are also the colors of Pharmaciae Sacrum, now you know why.

Jacques van Rossum created a poem for the banner. He was President of Pharmaciae Sacrum in 1987-1988. The poem is as follows:

Oh, gij artistiek kunstwerk

Gij staat stevig, gij staat sterk

Gij zijt van goud geweven

Hoog en lang zult gij voortleven
