The seal of Saint Pedro Poveda College a cross, symbolic of Jesus Christ, who is the center of Povedan education. At the lower right is a book representing Science and knowledge. The star in the book represents Mary, Mother of Jesus, under whose patronage the College was placed from its very beginning. The seal also bears the Latin words Deus Scientarium Dominus which means "God, the Lord of Sciences"
The seal is expressive of the College's roots and inspirations. To a Povedan, knowledge and virtue, science and faith, study and prayer are equally important. They are the weapons that will enable a Povedan to attain integral growth and formation, and become globally competent to assume leadership roles in society.
School Mascot: The Golden Phoenix
In 2009, the school mascot, the Golden Phoenix was created through a contest launched for all Poveda students, in celebration of the school's 50th foundation anniversary. A symbol of faith, resilience, hope and a new beginning, the Golden Phoenix embodies the ideals and character traits a Povedan would like to aspire for and promotes the team spirit of the College. Like the Golden Phoenix which rises and is reborn from its ashes, a Povedan hopes to triumph over life's adversities and challenges, emerging as a better person by retaining the integrity of the values of a true Povedan.
