SOE Logotypes


The “badge” – shows Europa, daughter of king Agenor, frolicking with Zeus on a beach in Crete. Zeus had taken on the disguise of a white bull to approach the beautiful Europa. The badge has the form of a teardrop. Tears of sorrow and tears of joy are a privilege of mankind. Sunlight and vision reveal the world. The “badge” was offered to the SOE in 1968 by Prof. L. Werner (Dublin). The design is based on a suggestion by Prof. J. Charamis.
