The TACHE seal


Approved in 1974 the TACHE seal is designed as two concentric circles. The outside circular border contains the name of the Association and the date it was established. The inside circle contains the symbol of Quetzalcoatl, the patron god of the Aztec priesthood, of learning and knowledge. Quetzalcoatl was one of several important gods in the Aztec pantheon along with the gods Tlaloc, Tezcatlipoca and Huitzilopochtli. To the Aztecs, Quetzalcoatl was, as his name indicates in Nahuatl, a feathered serpent. He also had anthropomorphic forms as in the TACHE logo where two forms are portrayed.
