Our emblem was determined after a competition was organized by our Rectorate and in cooperation with Şanlıurfa Province Culture and Arts Research Foundation (ŞURKAV).

Among others, the jury of the competition selected the work designed by Assistant Professor A. Cihat KÜRKÇÜOĞLU as the winner and decided to use it as our university emblem.

In our emblem, a motif of a plant, sprouted from “a heart” symbolizing love and unity, rolls up the ruins of historic Harran University.

The yellow and green colors used in the emblem symbolizes the agriculture in the Harran Plain, the blue color in circle symbolizes Şanlıurfa Tunnel and water which revives the plain.  Design of the plant motif was inspired by the stone-dressings on the ruins of the historic Harran University.
