Our Logo

Our logo symbolizes our community. The elements of the logo convey the multinational aspect of the Licentiate Society and illustrate its members hard-earned status as local medical practitioners in service to the people of Hong Kong.

First, the central element of the logo resembles the Rod of Asclepius a symbol of medicine and health care. Additionally, the traditional rod is represented by a Bauhinia themed anchor.

The combination draws inspiration from the Licentiates’ rigorous pathway to Hong Kong and from Hong Kong’s own rich maritime history. The earthly blue circle signifies the group’s mission in bringing together LMCHK doctors from around the world.
