The college was initially founded as “Pearl Jubilee College” (PJC) in 2010, the year UM commenced its 30th year. The college was located in temporary quarters on UM’s original campus in Taipa. It was one of two pilot colleges to help the university prepare for the large-scale RC system when the Hengqin (current) campus opened.
Upon relocation to the current campus in 2014, the college was named after the late Mr. Henry FOK Ying Tung as “Henry Fok Pearl Jubilee College” in recognition of the generous donation of Henry Fok Foundation. Mr. Henry Fok was one of the most important developmental figures and philanthropists in Macao’s 20th Century history.
Our first group of students selected orange as our College colour in 2010. The qualities of the colour are the very things we like to bring to our College community.
Orange is a positive, cheerful colour that suggests warmth, good nature, health, outdoor activity and energy. The colour helps us to assert our strengths as individuals and as a community even when the going gets tough, when we have to be resilient in the face of difficulties. It is a rejuvenating colour.
Laranja (Portuguese for an orange) is our College Mascot. Laranja was designed in 2012 by Eric WU Tat Leong as the winning entrant in a college-mascot design competition. Eric was a student of the college, majored in psychology and graduated in 2015. All the energy and the personality of the colour orange is contained in this little person who appears at all sorts of college events, on t-shirts and in publications. We hope you will get to know Laranja well and emulate his (or her) cheerful spirit!
Orange and the orange tree are obvious in our College Crest which was designed by CHEN Fei in 2015 and selected by the College members from a number of different designs. Fei was a Resident Tutor in the College from 2011-present.
The College’s logo consists of two parts: the crest and the name in Chinese (霍英東珍禧書院), Portuguese (Colégio do Jubileu de Pérola Henry Fok) and English (Henry Fok Pearl Jubilee College).
For external communication purposes, The College logo must be paired with the University Logo, on the right, and the size of the unit logo should not exceed that of the University Logo. For details please refer to the University of Macau Brand Guidelines.
