Blood is the source of life. You can only get blood when you come in contact with sharp objects. And thus, the SHS logo derived from which is represented by two sharp looking blades correlating to the idea of cutting-edge Haematological Science. The two sharp blades which encircle the centre of the attraction, blood cells are intentionally placed opposite each other to simulate the idea of embracing the science of blood in the quest to unravel greater knowledge from this discipline which requires sharp and critical thinking skills. The blades also form a rough idea of an eye when taken in unity with the other elements in the logo. This communicates the vigilance, surveillance or a watchful eye in this area of science. The whole logo is presented with red being the main colour simply because blood is warm and you can only get fresh red blood from those who are alive. The fade effect is used to create a sense of motion, that of uncertainty slowly transiting into clarity. This very much relates to what Science is all about. Things only get clearer when you explore what is not known yet. Knowledge is an endless journey of exploring.
