The UCLA seal is a special element, an icon reserved for formal and ceremonial use, when the history and tradition of the campus are central to the occasion. It is a variation of the University of California seal, designed by Tiffany & Co. and adopted by the Regents in 1910. The seal incorporates the UC motto, Let There Be Light.
Because it is a complex and detailed design, the UCLA seal looks best at relatively large sizes. It is appropriate for formal invitations, engraved awards and plaques, and ceremonial banners.
