THE 150TH LOGO
Our anniversary logo mirrors our values as confident women of character with lifelong bonds of sisterhood and celebrates all that is Gamma Phi Beta in our current color palette.
The image features a cherished Sorority image – the pink carnation. Our flower symbolizes sisterly love and gratitude; it has the distinction of being the longest lasting flower, a symbol of the beauty of our enduring sisterhood.
The logo is elegant and timeless, just like our Sorority that is celebrating its landmark birthday and looking forward to the next 150 years.
