With the aim of creating a sense of solidarity among students, faculty and staff, and promoting the visibility and presence of Tottori University, the symbol mark and mascot of Tottori University were established in June 2008 as part of efforts to establish the brand image and UI (University Identity) of the University.

Symbol Mark


 The symbol mark of the University represents the initial letter “T” of Tottori University, which is designed in the form of a dynamically flying bird. The flowing lines comprising the mark express the dynamism with which the University flexibly adapts to the new era as a unique and attractive university with a distinct identity. The two wings intersecting in the center symbolize infinite (∞) possibility and the Fusion of Knowledge and Practice, the University’s basic principles and represent the continuous growth of the University.

 The three circles comprised of two wings and a tail represent the goals* of the University’s education and research activities, while the image colors of blue and green represent the sky and the sea or the earth and life, which are symbols of the Earth, suggesting that the University develops globally while being nurtured by rich nature.
