Logo and motto of Lo’au University:

The dark and red are the main two colours of ancient Tongan society. Gold is the colour of classical Western, Eastern and world civilizations, and the golden garland is a symbol of Greek and Roman civilizations. ‘Alofi, ’Roundness’, is a common shape in ancient Tongan culture and arts. Kumete, ’kava-bowl’, is a symbol of the ancient Ha’a Lo’au, ‘Lo’au Lineage’. The two kalia, ’double hulled canoes’, and Ha’amonga-‘a-Maui Motu’a, ’Ha’amonga Trilithon’, are symbols of the ancient Tu’i Tonga Empire during the time of the Lo’au Lineage between the 10th and 17th centuries. The motto of Toka-‘i-Ma’ananga, ‘Omnipresence-in-Ma’ananga’, points to the profound knowledge, and wisdom, of Lo’au Lineage to forecast any upcoming event and activity in ancient Tongan society generally.
