The logo incorporates four main colors:
- Dark Blue shows the maturity of an institute of higher learning, which offers different levels of study.
- Purple symbolises excellence in global knowledge.
- Yellow represents the sovereignty of the Malay kings and the struggle of the Malays in an effort to take the national education towards excellence.
- White shows the sacred and pure knowledge offered to the students.
The overall shape of the logo maintains the original shape in order to retain the identity of UiTM as the font of knowledge.
