Symbolism

Badge

The ancient Greek warrior refers to the name of Argonaut ACSTC, taken from the legend of Jason and his search for the Golden Fleece. The warriors on his ship, the Argo, were called Argonauts. The leadership of Jason and his perseverance in attaining his goal are appropriate qualities for the association of his legend with the Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Meaning "Excellence".
