New visual identity of the University was developed in 2013, when it was preparing for the 50th anniversary. New university symbols were approved on 24 October 2013 by the Heraldic Council of the President of the Republic of Belarus.
Up till now there has been no visual identity reflecting distinguishing features of our university. In 1993, the trade mark, which had been used on university official papers and souvenirs, was patented. It reflected the sphere of activities of the University, its specific features, but the trade mark could not be called an adequate symbol. As a result, new identity of the University comprises the emblem, flag, Rector’s standard, colours, breastplate for the University graduates and the Distinguished Service Medal of BSUIR.
The emblem preserved the commonly known BSUIR’s trade mark. The colour of the emblem is primarily blue. It emphasises the academic activities of the organisation. The blue colour symbolises spirituality. It puts into reflections, aspiration for cognition and scientific work. The emblem contains such elements as:
- a sinusoid and radio signals which point out that BSUIR carries out academic and scientific activities while training experts in radio electronics;
- the globe which symbolises information activities of the University that practically encompass the whole world;
- an open book which symbolises the belonging of the University to the system of education, is a symbol of high culture and a fount of accumulated wisdom;
- a cornflower which has been a traditional symbol of our nation, country and land for many centuries.
The Flag of BSUIR was designed on the base of a heraldic sign-emblem with its main elements and colours. The emblem is on the blue background in the centre of the flag. The University’s full name in the Belarusian language is written at the bottom.
The diamond-shaped breastplate is given to graduates of Belarussian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics. There is the Emblem of the Republic of Belarus at the top and a sinusoid and radio signals on the blue background in the centre of the plate.
The Distinguished Service Medal of BSUIR has a round shape and a sinusoid with radio signals and a cornflower - the national symbol of Belarus. Beneath the sinusoid the medal bears the words ‘BSUIR is 50’ in the Belarusian language.
The Rector’s Standard has a square shape and blue background. There is an emblem in the centre and the University’s full name in the Belarusian language. The rims of the standard are decorated with national ornament and cornflowers in the corners.
The Colours look similar to the standard, but are bigger in size and of a rectangular shape.
