Meaning and History

Alcorn State Braves Logo History
Alcorn State Braves Logo Evolution

The first and modern logo looks almost the same. It shows the confidence of the teams, loyalty to sports principles. The 1996 version shows a single letter โ€œAโ€ in a classic upper case serif font. Instead of the crossbar, it says, โ€œAlcorn.โ€ It goes beyond the sign and divides it into two parts.

After a redesign in 2004, the logo has a 3D effect. The effect is formed by the large letter flare and darkening on the right side of the word โ€œAlcorn,โ€ which is made in the capital font. As a result of the next update (2017), the color of the emblem has been enhanced: instead of beige, there is gold instead of purple โ€“ dark purple.
