ULPGC shall have as its representative symbols the coat of arms, the logotype, the seal, the medal and the flag, which shall be approved by the Senate, except the logotype, whose regulation belongs to the Council of Government. The representative symbols of the constituting structures shall be approved by the Council of Government, on proposal by the interested structures and with information provided to the Board in the next session.
The coat of arms of ULPGC is circular, featuring in the background an astrolabe, and, in a off-centered design, the shield of the seven Canary Islands surrounded by the motto "Ad orbem per technicam" [To the World Through Technics]. The name of the institution, Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is placed on the outer ring of the circle.
