The key inspiration behind the creation of the NUMS’ identity is an Ayah from the Holy Quran
Allah said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know." (Al Quran; Surah Al-Baqarah verse: 30)
Allah The Creator, has announced His faith in, and placed, humanity above others. This poses challange to human kind to live up to His confidence. 'Understanding and improving life' through knowledge and action is our motto at NUMS.
The bluish green colour of the emblem relates to the spiritual bonding with the Gumbad e Khizra; the tomb of the Prophet Muhammad SAW and also to the dominant colour of Pakistani flag. It also signifies peace, tranquility, freedom, harmony, spirituality, serenity, happiness and nature’s healing power.
The blue green semicircle on the left lower aspect implies crescent, after the style of the same on our national flag. The setting moon implies solution or cure rather than a rising one which would stand more with rising problems or diseases. The hollow white core symbolizes the creation of the universe. The golden coloured inner circle glorifies the arrival of life and also the message and wisdom spreading like the rays of the glowing sun onto this world of darkness. The outer circle in blue green implies humanity and all that it stands for; with the faith and confidence that the Creator has reposed in humanity.
The Ayah has been symbolized through an artistic design in NUMS' logo.
