The Rector’s regalia and the University’s coat of arms are symbols of the University’s unique status in society, signifying its autonomy and academic freedom. Their symbolic value was equal to that of royal insignia. In this publication, we will describe the main elements of these attributes, their creators and uses during different periods in the University’s history. We will emphasize the importance and continuity of this material cultural heritage in identifying Vilnius University as an institution with a long history and traditions and in providing its community with symbols of identity.
