The great traditions of Bellarmine University now exist in more than just our memories but represented through the official Bellarmine ring. The shield, which represents the core values and traditions of Bellarmine University, is prominently featured. Each quadrant of the shield carries special meaning. The helmet of the Bellarmine Knight, our official mascot, sits atop the shield. At the juncture of the four quadrants appears the fleur de lis, the emblem of our home, the beautiful City of Louisville. Each ring is engraved on the inside with the Bellarmine motto, “In Veritatis Amore” – “In the love of truth”.
