Camosun unveils new Indigenous-designed logo

November 13, 2020
Camosun College has unveiled a new logo in preparation for its 50th anniversary in 2021. The logo was designed by Coast Salish artist and Camosun alumnus Dylan Thomas, whose research on the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations history and pre-history of the region formed the “baseline foundation for the design.” “I started thinking about the word Camosun which means where two waters meet and are transformed,” said Thomas. The new design represents the narrative legend of Camossung, the protector of the Tillicum Narrows waterways, and includes an image of herring to represent the fish offered to Camossung by the Protector.
