It is a symbol of nobility, beauty, loyalty and majesty. The University colors of CUHK are purple and gold, representing dedication and loyalty, perseverance and resolution, respectively.
The motto of CUHK is 'Through learning and temperance to virtue' (博文約禮), extracted from The Analects of Confucius and long considered a principal precept of his teaching. According to the Analects, Confucius says 'The superior man, extensively studying all learning, and keeping himself under the restraint of the rules of propriety, may thus likewise not overstep what is right.' (Legge's version of The Four Books) As manifested in our motto, CUHK-Shenzhen lays equal emphasis on intellectual and moral aspects of education.
