Like logos, seals are symbols by which organizations can be commonly identified. Seals/Crests are commonly used in schools, firms, families, fraternities/sororities, special interest groups, etc. Often, the seal is held in esteem and not used outside of special documents or letterheads. In other cases, it can be used
in apparel, notepads and other custom organizational trademarks and paraphernalia.
