The South Dakota Board of Regents have a new logo.
The new design, debuted earlier this year, is representative of the petals of the state flower, the pasque.
Each of the six larger petals represents a public university within the regents' system—Black Hills State University, Dakota State University, Northern State University, South Dakota Mines, South Dakota State University, and the University of South Dakota.
The two smaller petals are a nod to the two schools within the system that serve special K-12 populations: South Dakota School for the Blind & Visually Impaired and South Dakota School for the Deaf.
