It is to be realized through the vision and the educative system of Don Bosco. Thus the picture of Don Bosco is placed at the center. The overall shape of the cross speaks for the salvation of all. Thus true wisdom begins with self-sacrifice.
The quill of the Hornbill (State bird of Arunachal Pradesh) placed on either side of the emblem stands for the unity and integrity among the various tribes that will be achieved by receiving the light of true wisdom. Along with it the institution seeks to preserve the culture and tradition of the tribes – the wisdom of the ancients.
