“The Yenepoya University emblem reflects the rich ideals and the core values upon which the very foundations have been built. The colours on the shield are a salutation to the three key facets of the University - the mentor, the materials and the medium - through which this increase takes place, and are also representative of them.
Green embodies life and the giver thereof. Green is the color of paradise, the ultimate destination for all knowledge seekers. Just as the azure sky, wraps the Earth, blue symbolizes protection. Blue is synonymous with scholastic achievements and the success the institution has to its credit.
And last but not the least, grey symbolizes stability and dependability. It stands for the staunch guiding (governing) principles and discipline that our students and hence our institutions are known for.
The Shield, symbolic of a reputed seat of learning is adorned with (emblazoned with) the motto "Rabbi Zidni 'Ilma" on the ribbon below. The words in Arabic, taken from the Holy Quran, literally translate into the meaningful phrase - "Lord, increase me in knowledge" - indeed the very frame, the life plasma and the purpose of the institution, all its faculties and facilities.”
