||Carries over from the crest of Nanyang University. The rings also symbolise the three foci of NUS in creating, imparting and applying knowledge as well as the three hallmarks of a global university - creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. The interlocking feature denotes the close interrelation between the three pillars with each reinforcing and evolving from the other.|
||Aligns NUS with the nation. Personifies the qualities of the ideal NUS graduate. The raised paw denotes boldness to initiate and to inquire as well as a readiness to serve. The tail held high symbolises qualities of integrity and idealism.|
