Meaning and History
The old emblem of the university sports association depicts the devil in cartoon style created by Bert Anthony, an artist from Disney. Sparky runs, putting forward the trident as if he intends to capture up with his opponents. This image was presented in 1980. All elements of the logo are painted in Сrimson-Bordeaux color and have a golden edging. The face and forks of the “mischievous devil” (as it is called among the people) are yellow.
This version existed until 2011. Then the talisman has moved into the category of brand symbolism and is now used separately. It was replaced by another version where only the devil’s forks are left. The trident is made close-up and is the central part of the emblem. All its ends are pointy, as is the shortened handle. The color of the pitchfork is golden; the edging line is dark crimson.
