Meaning and History
Arkansas University received its status and present name in the 20th century, even though it was founded in the second half of the 19th century. The renewed logo of the university appeared in 2001. It shows a magnificent lion placed in a semi-profile.
The mouth of the animal is stretched in a formidable growl. Inside it is visible a scarlet tongue and two rows of sharp white teeth with long canines. Red eyes support the scary image. As if the beast were so angry that it was ready to tear its opponent apart. The golden mane is shattered as if the animal were waving its head.

2015 – present
The blistering wool is depicted with black strokes that blend perfectly with yellow, forming the likeness of shadows. On the chin and forehead, there are light highlights of sharp angular shape. They highlight the lion’s rage and willingness to attack – as if he was sweating from emotional tension.
The modern version is the same as before. The changes made in 2015 are insignificant: they touched the color, which has become more intense, and the location of the head – now it is turned to the right. Shadows on the mane are also worked out: some disappeared, others appeared.
