The natural and genuine characteristics of a Malay keris in the Keris Agung represent the philosophy behind the establishment of Universiti Teknologi MARA. These were adapted from the creation of a keris known as Keris Potong Barat.

The motif on the hilt of Keris Agung is a yellow gourd flower, the hilt ring has a bamboo shoot motif and the sheath is covered with Bunga Tanjung (Mimusops Elengi).
