The motto of Namchi Government College Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye is a Sanskrit axiom meaning to free people from all kinds of bondage- social, religious, political, of Convention and superstitions, of Caste and Communalism through education. The college emblem is symbolic and evocative. It comprises of the lamp with flames at the centre with lotus petals on either sides of the lamp set at the background of the mountains with blue sky above and ocean below. The lofty mountain signifies our ideals and determination to achieve higher heights of wisdom. The vast blue sea signifies the unfathomable reservoir of knowledge and the blue sky points to our perseverance to achieve higher goals in life. Like the churning of sea by Devas and Danavas to produce Amrita- the ambrosia of deep knowledge, the burning lamp and the lotus stand in the centre of the emblem emerging from the ocean suggest that the burning lamp will lead people from darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge and from the realm of unknown to the known. The lotus signifies the seat which the deity Saraswati the goddess of knowledge adores and blesses the humanity.
