Society Symbols

The badge of the society is a globe against the background of the sun, whose rays form an expansive corona and radiate in a number of symmetrical and equal concentrations from behind the globe.  These signify equivalence among the various branches of learning and represent dissemination of truth as light.   
Encircling the globe is a band containing the Greek letters ΦKΦ (Phi Kappa Phi).  It symbolizes a fraternal bond which girds the earth and binds the lovers of wisdom in a common purpose. 

The first word of the Phi Kappa Phi motto is Philosophía (fe-loh-so-FI-uh, with “FI” as in “fee” not “file”).  For historical reasons, the Society translates this Greek word as “the love of learning.” 
The second word of the motto is Krateítō (Krah-TAY-toe).  Krateítō is a verb meaning “to rule.”  In the Society's motto, the word has the form of a strong exhortation that calls on the members to “let the love of learning rule.” 
The last word of the motto is Phōtôn (Foe-TONE).  This word occurs in ancient Greek poetry and drama with the meaning of mortals in contrast to the immortal gods.  In the Society's motto, it refers to all human beings – men and women – thus the use of the word “humanity.”
