Meaning and History
Since 2001, the Rex wasp, the mascot of American International College, has been depicted on the national teams’ logo. The insect runs and looks intimidating, threateningly approaching its rivals. The sting is made distinct, large, expressive. This is another element of intimidation of competitors. The wasp is drawn with very muscular arms (in white gloves) and legs (in white shoes). On the black T-shirt is an abbreviation for the college name – “AIC.”
In the 2009th year, the logo was corrected. The sting wasp “Rex” lengthened. The distance between the black stripes made more. The effect of “fluffiness” was removed. The antennae of the wasp changed shape, making them much shorter and sharper. The choice of colors used in the AIC Yellow Jackets logo is fully consistent with the wasp’s theme – a combination of black, white, and yellow. The latter is presented in shades of Pantone 1235 and Hex FFCC33.
