The Lotus symbolizes potential and in its fully blossomed form represents enlightenment and awareness. The flower is deeply rooted in Indian culture, particularly associated with Saraswati – the Goddess of Wisdom. The trans-disciplinary approach is represented through the confluence of sections, implying an immersive learning experience. The transition of colors represent evolution of an individual at Avantika University. The identity reflects transformation and it is the knowledge (Vidya) that takes us through this transformation and leads to accomplishment (Siddhi).
