The Emblem
 
Throughout the world, Lions are recognized by the emblem they wear on their lapels. It consists of a gold letter "L" on a circular purple field. Bordering this is a circular gold area with two lion profiles at either side facing away from the center. The word "Lions" appears at the top, and "International" at the bottom. Symbolically, the lions face both past and future -- proud of the past and confident of the future.
 
The Motto
 
The motto of every Lion is simply "We Serve". What better way to express the true mission of Lionism?
 
The Slogan
 
The slogan of the association is "Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation's Safety (LIONS)".
 
Official Colors
 
The royal colors of purple and gold were selected as the official colors when the association was organized in 1917. Purple stands for loyalty to friends and to one's self, and for integrity of mind and heart. Gold symbolizes sincerity of purpose, liberality in judgment, purity in life and generosity in mind, heart and purpose toward humanity.

The Lions Den
 
In 1996, the borough of Minersville made available the first floor of the Senior Citizen building. Renovation of this permanent meeting place began in January, 1997. It was dedicated on May 3, 1998, it is now known as the "Lions Den". Meeting and special events during the colder months are held here. The den has room to display all the club insignia and awards. It can seat over 50 people comfortably, with additional room for food service. There is also a kitchen, storage rooms and tile-finished men's and women's restrooms.
