Our emblem

In 1949, our then-principal chose a head of Janus as the emblem for the Sprachenschule, the forerunner of the Fremdspracheninstitut.

Janus is one of the most ancient Roman godheads, personifying beginnings and endings and presiding over all doors and gateways.

FIM’s Janus was reworked to give him not two but three heads, enabling him to see the past, the present and the future.
