AboutCU Symbols

The Colour Pink

The colour pink was selected by the CU Student Union as the symbolic colour of Chulalongkorn University in 1935, the year the first annual football match between Chulalongkorn University and Thammasat University took place.   Out of all the colours, pink was selected since it was a traditionally auspicious colour for Tuesday, the day of the week King Chulalongkorn was born.

The sense of kinship and warmth found in the Chula community is priceless and a treasure worth keeping.
