Historical note

Danielle Greenwell and Minesh Patel designed the winning coat of arms for Gregory College House which depicts a pair of lions rampant on the Earth's surface rooted together by a mighty tree. The lions symbolize Gregory's dual heritage (in 1998, Van Pelt College House and Modern Languages College House were united) and salutes the house of McGregor. The tree represents Gregory's common purpose and fruitfulness as a cohesive House. The globe symbolizes the international character of the House, embodied in the Modern Language program and various British exchange programs such as the venerable Edinburgh tradition in Van Pelt. Finally, the motto "Multis e Gentibus Vires," which means "From many peoples, strength," celebrates Gregory's commitment to unity.
