The official seal of COLEGIO DE LA INMACULADA CONCEPCION is distinctively Vincentian and Marian.

The bywords: CHRISTIAN SERVICE, TRUTH and LOVE summarizes CIC's Mission as an eduational institution through more than a century of growth in self-awareness and self-renewal.

The cross on the inflamed heart represents Christ's burning love for mankind. It depicts likewise the zeal, dedication and love which characterize the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, whose service is motivated principally by the desire "to honor and serve Christ spiritually and corporally in the person of His brothers, the poor." This typical Vincentian Charity finds expression in the continuing quest for God who is Truth and Love personified.

The central motif presents the lily, symbol of purity and womanly beauty, and symbol of Mary, the Immaculate Mother of God "conceived without sin." Venerated under the particular title of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Mary as Patroness of the school stands as our model of purity, simplicity, truthfulness, love and humble service for others.

Encompassing the diamond insigna is a huge crown, symbolizing Mary's powerful role as Mother of God, Intercessor and Mediatrix of all Graces.

The rays emanating from the crown are symbolic of the far-reaching effects of Mary's influence on the lives of all those who entrust themselves fully to her maternal guidance and protection, particularly those who hail her as Queen and Mother under the "Blue and White" banner.
