Mindanao State University


The Mindanao State University seal was created by an anonymous student with a very good sense of culture and vision. The three rays on top stand for the Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan (MINSUPALA) regions which were the main thrust of MSU at its inception. The lamp in the middle signifies the light with which to guide the people in their quest for knowledge. Finally the fish and the okir symbols around the lamp along with the color scheme represent the unique and impressive culture of the Maranaos in the area surrounding the Mindanao State University.(msumain.edu.ph)
