Hats off to YOU

Our emblem consists of a gold letter "L" on a circular blue field. Bordering this is a circular gold area with two lion profiles facing away from the center. The word "Lions" appears at the top and the word "International" appears at the bottom. The Lions are meant to face both a proud past and confident future.


"We Serve," our motto is the basis and foremost description of what we do.


"Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation's Safety" is our slogan. The first letter of each word spells LIONS.


Our official colors are blue and gold. Blue for loyalty and integrity and gold for sincerity, liberty, purity, and generosity.
