About the logo

Text

The logo of METU-TEKPOL symbolises an alert owl. The western cultures associate owls with wisdom. The goddess of the Athens in the Ancient Greek, Athena had the owl as a symbol. Back in the Indo-European cultures the owl symbolised dignity, wisdom and dedication. The logo was inspired by Prof. Hasan Ünal Nalbantoğlu of Department of Sociology who unfortunately passed away in 2011.
