On the seal we see the Latin text: Sigillum
Academia Regia Aboensis (Aboensis is the Latin word for Abo);
the year of the establishment in 1640 and a Bible text Zechariah
6:8, referring to ‘the land of the North’.
We can see the tetragrammaton under the
crown. It is worthy of mention that in a later seal
of the Helsinki University the tetragrammaton and the Bible
text are still used.
