Sport is the main force in all corners of the globe. This is the emblem’s concept, as the Alaska Nanooks logo consists of the strongest animal above the Arctic Circle. The polar bear is indestructible and formidable, which can perfectly scare off the rivals of the university sports department.

Meaning and History

Alaska Nanooks Logo History

The original Alaska Nanooks logo is presented in the 1960s. Its author is a student inspired by one of Fred Machetanz’s artistic works. It was a black and white image of a polar bear made in ink. Next to the walking animal were the letters “UA.” They were an acronym for the University of Alaska.

In 1975, when the university was renamed into UAF, the logo was added “F” (Fairbanks), and the bear’s shape was slightly changed. The 1985 version was dominated by the word combination “University of Alaska Fairbanks” with three features at the bottom and a small bear on the right. The 1995-1996 logo shows the mascot of the university, the stylized northern lights, mountain ranges, and the ocean. The current version contains an image of a polar bear against the background of a large letter “A,” circled by a wide yellow stripe.
