The emblem of the University of Public and Individual Security “Apeiron”, not coincidentally showing a winged sword surrounded by stars, has a hidden symbolism which fully reflects the priorities of the University.
The central element of the emblem is a sword which symbolizes the honour code of warriors, alluding to age-old traditions of East and West. The sword also highlights the hierarchy of competences: experience, skills and knowledge. A modern Samurai follows, as centuries ago, “the way of a sword and literature”. The central symbol of the emblem means, as the matter of fact, the Sword of Mind, and in our emblem it is a winged symbol of unlimited power and creativity. The book located on the right side symbolizes knowledge. The book with three stars located on the left side indicates transmission of tradition and secret knowledge. The whole is surrounded by stars which represent the family of countries making up the European Union.
