Nankai Purple (The Purple of the Blue Lotus)
The color of Nankai is purple, or the purple of the blue lotus.
In China, the lotus is considered the symbol of nobility. Grown in muddy swamps and rising above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty, the exquisite flower, untouched by any impurities, symbolizes purity of heart and mind and represents longevity, humility, honor and tranquility. This is also the pursuit of Nankai.
The color is used in the school logo, flag and other Nankai items, such as on the website and publicity materials.
In practice, the color is divided into ten levels according to its brightness. Each level is able to be used as the standard school color or as different backgrounds.
