Crest[edit]

The Nayland College crest was designed by M.R. Smith. The crest is divided into quarters. The sailing ship represents discovery, the model of the atom represents research in reference to Lord Rutherford's work. The pine cone references forestry and the importance of this industry in New Zealand. The migratory godwit represents dispersal of students throughout the world.[3]
