The TSA emblem is a rectangular shape with three parts. The middle section and the largest part of the emblem contains the letters TSA in a very large, bold print. The letters are white on a blue background. Below these letters and about one-third the size, is the name of the association–Technology Student Association–in white letters on a red background. The top portion of the emblem is a blank red rectangular shape, the same size as the bottom area. This portion is intentionally left blank so that each state can put its own name on the emblem, if desired.
The emblem is symbolic of the association’s commitment to modern technology and its impact on the future. The letters of the emblem mean the following:
“T” represents all facets of technology and its contribution to making America the great nation it is today
“S” represents the students of the organization and is a symbol of strength, structure, and the cooperative efforts necessary in achieving the association’s goals
“A” represents the association and its local, regional, state, and national activities
