The motto "Jer Basuki Mawa Bea", is a famous Javanese slogan, which means "Achievements are only won through sacrifice".

The temple refers to the Candi Panataran (Panataran Temple). The Penataran is the largest and most important Hindu temple complex in East Java. It lies just 10 kilometres north of Blitar on the lower slopes of Mt Kelud. Dedicated to the god Siva, the temple was in use for at least three hundred years, from the 14th to 16th centuries. Most of the buildings which can be seen today, however, were constructed during Majapahit's golden century.
