The crest was chosen in 1952 after student competition. The design derives from "the shield of faith" in Ephesians 6:16 and the letters A & G represents Aoyama Gakuin.
In addition to all this,
take up the shield of faith,
with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Ephesians 6:16)
"Eago," AGU mascot, was selected by students in 1999 to symbolize AGU. The eagle represents a christian (who walk) journeying towards the kingdom of lord, empowered by the lord, like an eagle with wings so strong and tenatious that it gives hope to people.
but those who hope in the LORD WILL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH.
THEY WILL SOAR ON WINGS LIKE EAGLES;
THEY WILL RUN AND NOT GROW WEARY,
THEY WILL WALK AND NOT BE FAINT.
