The university emblem consists of two concentric circles. The inner circle depicts the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s symbol, the Hindu god Indra mounted on the divine white elephant Airavata or Erawan. Indra himself holds a lightning thunderbolt club called Vajira which is his personal weapon. This image represents the mythology of Indra’s duty to ward off black magic that casts darkness upon the human world. The god Indra would use thunder bolts to weaken the power of evil. Thus, Indra riding the Erawan on the clouds confers prosperity for commoners.
At the top of the emblem is inscribed the Bali words reading,
The lower part has the words “MahawitthayalaiNavamindradhiraj” which means Navamindradhiraj University in Thai.
The color of the university is dark green.
