|Description of Colour and Symbol.
The orange and purple colours in the R&I logo is taken from the colours of the USM logotype, which are derived from the official USM crest.
The slanting “I”, which symbolises a slightly bowed posture is synonymous with the popular Malay term of resmi padi (following after the characteristics of a paddy plant) which is explained as semakin berisi semakin tunduk (the more one is enlightened, the more one bows in humility).
The “I” also stands for innovation, is located within the “R” of the logo to signify that the element of creativity must be present in research.
The orbit which originates from the “R” and encircles the logo represents the continuing and unending quest for new knowledge which stems from research itself.
