To the foreign applicant
The year 2008 marked a significant date in the history of our young university. On June 11, the Heraldic Council under the President of the Republic of Belarus registered its emblem, flag and badge which is presented upon the student's graduation from the institution of education "Baranavichy State University". Now BarSU is the 6th higher educational establishiment which has its own symbols registered at the Heraldic Council under the President of the Republic of Belarus.
On the emblem, shaped as an unrolled manuscript, sits a conventionalized stork, whose wings are depicted as an open book. The bird aims skyward which symbolizes one's progress towards new knowledge, science and learning. At the top left-hand part of the emblem, which is most distinguished, rests an ornamental cornflower which signifies the university's relation to the Republic of Belarus.
The emblem rests on a shield whose shape is close to the so-called French form.
The flag and the badge have been designed on the basis of the heraldic symbol–emblem, using its basic elements and colours.
