The Seahorse

The Seahorse is a symbol that holds a special place in the history of Belfast Old Instonians. The Seahorse emblem has been associated with the school since its founding in 1863, and it is said to represent the maritime heritage of Belfast. The Seahorse appears prominently in the school’s crest and is also featured on the blazers worn by the students. The school’s rugby team is known as the Old Instonians Seahorses, and they have a strong tradition of success on the pitch. The Seahorse has become a beloved symbol for generations of Old Instonians, who proudly display it on their ties, scarves, and other memorabilia. The Seahorse also serves as a reminder of the school’s commitment to excellence, and its enduring legacy as one of Northern Ireland’s premier educational institutions.
