New image of the Order of Augustinian Recollects
In today’s society the image has special importance. Official agencies, institutions and companies are presented and recognized through their logos and trademarks. The symbols they use remind us who they are and what they do.
Our Order has been identified over the years with its heraldic shield and different logos that show a burning heart pierced by a dart and, at its feet, a book. With these symbols used by our father Augustine we feel identified and manifest our being, our mission and our sense of belonging.
However, different versions of the same shield, and the multitude of logos that are being used with various symbols, colors and fonts, make it very difficult to identify with the same order and create confusion. For this reason we offer an official version of the traditional heraldic shield and a new logo that expresses who we are.
The different versions of this shield and logo in the official languages of the Order and their rules of use are specified in the AUGUSTINIAN RECOLLECT IDENTITY STANDARDS MANUAL which is available on this page for download. In this same page you can download a folder with all the logos, emblems and shields.
The proper use of this manual allows the Order of Augustinian Recollects to have a common graphic image, and to facilitate a quick identification.
