On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the University of Warsaw, a competition for visual identification of the entire event was announced. The chosen sign was supposed to show the history and the prestige of the institution and at the same time look ahead.
Connections between the points reveal the essence of the functioning of the University - a network of connections and cooperation between the units. Some call goes beyond the numbers depicting the connection of external institutions. In addition, structurally they relate to the building of the Warsaw University Library (to the roof rack and pink) - that is one of the symbols of modern Warsaw University. Each star represents one of the first five faculties of the University of Warsaw. Each point represents one of the twenty existing faculties of the University of Warsaw. Points are arranged so as to capture the schematic location on the map of Warsaw (looking from the South to the North ). The first two points (the upper part of the '2') are Department of Management and the Department of Linguistics.
