The Mace

The Mace

Cokmar Rasmi UniMAP

DESIGN OF THE MACE: CONCEPT

The mace embodies the concept of “the tree of life”, comprising elements of a tree: the roots, the trunk, the leaves and flowers.

Flowers

At the top of the carving of the ylang ylang bloom (Bunga Kenanga) is the Royal Crown of Glory symbolizing Perlis as a Royal State.

The six flower petals blooming upwards are made of silver, representing the Islamic Six Pillars of Faith (Rukun Iman). The layers of petals represent the programmes of study offered at the university and the diversity in its graduates. The three petals at the bottom, also carved in silver, are the bunga pulut, hibiscus (bunga raya) and bougainvillea (bunga kertas). Bunga Pulutis a classic Malay design associated with nature, symbolizing the University’s aspiration of providing light in the region through knowledge. The flower also signifies that seeking knowledge is an endless endeavour.

Roots

Roots are central to the life of a plant as they provide nourishment to the rest of the plant. The roots at the bottom part of The Mace represents the aspiration of UniMAP to nurture the student through knowledge. The carving of the paddy flower in an upward bloom represents the importance of an early start in education and knowledge-seeking so as to result in a visionary generation that will grow as required by society.

Leaves

At the bottom of The Mace are three gemstones in primary colours of red, green and blue. The gemstones represent the fundamental components of life. The leaves symbolize the physical and spiritual strength of the campus community. The carving of a verse from Surah Al-Mujaadilah of the Holy Al-Quran is found here, to mean:

“O you who have believed, when you are told, "Space yourselves" in assemblies, then make space; Allah will make space for you. And when you are told, "Arise," then arise; Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge, by degrees. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do”.

Below the verse are carvings of the university’s core values of Knowledge, Sincerity, Excellence.

Trunk

The Mace itself is made of silver gilded in gold.It is decorated with ylang-ylang and tendril motifs, symbolizing the never-ending process in seeking knowledge. Five logos of UniMAP represent the five pillars of Islam and the five principles of Rukun Negara that are to be observed. The seven coil segments refer to the Greatness of the Almighty.
