Right: Silver Westfield College Association badge with Honeysuckle emblem, 1915

Honeysuckle was the emblem of Westfield College from the beginning of the college in 1882. In 1956 the Westfield College Union Society adopted a penguin in London Zoo and named him Honeysuckle, creating the long-lasting association of Honeysuckle as a penguin mascot.

After Honeysuckle's death in 1958, the penguin mascot continued up until the 1980s.
