Our Lady's High School Badge

The badge of Our Lady's High School shows the connections to our local area and the reason for our existence.

The bishop's mitre connects us with Motherwell Diocese.

The water connects us to both the River Clyde and to the Lady Well, an ancient holy well in Motherwell.

The fleur-de-lys is a symbol of Our Lady.

The five pointed stars, or cinquefoils, are a symbol of the Hamilton family. Much of Lanarkshire was owned by the Hamiltons in the past. The current school is built on the home farm of Dalzell House, formerly a Hamilton stronghold.

Finally, the torch is a symbol of learning and knowledge.
