The Citadel logo was designed by a special task force appointed by Major General John S. Grinalds, President of The Citadel, and was officially adopted by the Board of Visitors in September 2001. The device is a miniature view of Padgett-Thomas Barracks, flanked by two palmettoes, with a crescent moon in the sky to the left of the Barracks' central tower. The logo appears on official Citadel stationery and faculty/staff business cards, and on Citadel Web pages. Use of the official seal is limited to formal Citadel purposes. An earlier version of the logo had been put in use during The Citadel's Sesquicentennial Year (1992-1993). (Sources: "Logo Usage Policy," Citadel Public Affairs Office; "What Is The Citadel?
