The DeMatha Stag

The Stag is the official mascot of DeMatha Catholic High School.

St. John DeMatha, who founded the Trinitarians in the late twelfth century, is said to have had a vision of a white stag with a red and blue cross between its antlers.

The Trinitarians, who wear a white habit with a red and blue cross, established DeMatha in 1946.

The Stag (Cervus elaphus), is a well-known deer, family Cervidae (order Artiodactyla), native to Europe, Asia, and northwestern Africa and introduced into New Zealand.
