Meaning and History

AIC Yellow Jackets Logo History

Since 2001, the team’s emblem has depicted Rex, the mascot of American International College. The insect is running and looks menacing, threateningly approaching opponents. The stinger is made distinct, large, and expressive. This is another element of intimidating opponents. The wasp is drawn with very muscular arms (in white gloves) and legs (in white boots). On the black shirt is the acronym of the college’s name – “AIC.”

In 2009, the logo was revised. Rex’s stinger was elongated. The distance between the black stripes was made larger. The “fluffy” effect was removed. The wasp’s antennas changed shape, making them much shorter and sharper. The choice of colors used in the AIC Yellow Jackets logo fully corresponds to the wasp theme – a combination of black, white, and yellow. The latter is represented by Pantone 1235 and Hex FFCC33 shades.
