The designed symbol evokes the escutcheon of the Nursing School of Coimbra, interpreting the iconic elements defined by its heraldry. Here, the brand also asserts the communion of two nursing education and science institutions that converged into the Nursing School of Coimbra (ESEnfC) and that unite, today, in the city of Coimbra, in a unique identity and with the same ideal: the status NURSING COIMBRA.

The circular geometry provides the formal structure of the sun (light, path). This is the basis in which the letter “E” (enfermagem, the Portuguese word for “nursing”) is drawn and engaged. The stylization of the two golden lamps’ silhouette turns both flames into one, thus emphasizing the communion of the two arms of one single dynamic body. Arms intersecting in a translational movement, where one hand cares for the sick and the other restores health.
