It is blazoned: The open book with ' inscribed was later adopted by the then-new New South Wales University of Technology in 1952. The historic constituent colleges, and their surviving constituent unions use their own emblems, with only the City and Guilds's emblem being a coat of arms. Many of the historic medical schools which merged to form Imperial College School of Medicine also had their own coat of arms, although these are no longer used.

Royal College
A royal college in some Commonwealth countries is technically a college which has received royal patronage and permission to use the prefix ''royal''. Permission is usually granted through a royal charter. The charter normally confers a constitution with perpetual succession and the right to sue or be sued independently of the members. The charter also usually provide for rights of recourse to the King in Council. Although incorporation is now cheaply and easily obtainable by registration, the distinction of a royal charter means that such charters are still sought by and granted to institutions considered to be in the public interest, typically learned professional societies. Although many institutions are formally royal colleges, such as the three royal public schools of Westminster, Winchester and Eton, the phrase "the royal colleges" is commonly applied to the medical institutions, such as the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physic ...
