Protea Flowers come in many shapes and forms. The Protea flower symbolizes diversity, courage and strength. The word Protea was orinially dervied from the Greek God Proteus – a sea god who had the power to know all things past, present and future. Proteus would change shape and transform to hide from people seeking his insights. It is this diversity, courage, strength and adaptibily that we wish to impart on Protea College students.
