DUC, the Owl
DUC is an owl that was created by University of Coimbra's Image, Media and Communication Project.
DUC, the owl, it's the interpretation of a symbol of the Greek mythology that is present on University of Coimbra (UC) insignia, "The Owl of Minerva", that represents knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition, and it can be seen on the University Tower when seen from University Stadium of Coimbra.
The name DUC is an acronym of "Desporto Universitário em Coimbra" (University Sport in Coimbra) and was created after analysing several proposals from SASUC's kindergarten students.
