The society’s first insignia was created in 1773. The current insignia consists of a laurel wreath, surmounted with a crown holding a lion representing the animal kingdom, a mountain the forms of the Earth, a tree the plant kingdom and an asklepian medici

Since the word “physiography”, which was in common use at the time of the Society’s founding in 1772, no longer belongs to our common vocabulary, the Royal Physiographic Society of Lund has for a number of years also used the secondary title “Academy for the Natural Sciences, Medicine and Technology”. The charter of the Society is to promote scientific endeavour in all of these disciplines.
