Meaning and History

Auburn Tigers Logo History

The sports teams of Auburn University have always been known as the Tigers. They have been called that way since 1892 when the educational institution first participated in inter-university football competitions. This is their only official nickname. It is believed to have been inspired by the poem “The Deserted Village” by the English poet and playwright Oliver Goldsmith, published in 1770. It says in line 355: “Where crouching tigers wait for their happy prey.” The team’s name was reflected in their old logo, which featured the head of a cartoon tiger. But then the design changed, giving way to the original orange and blue monogram of the letters “AU.”

1957 – 1970

Auburn Tigers Logo 1957-1970

The debut logo of the university is based on the image of the tiger – the mascot of the Auburn athletes. The author is Phil Neel, who designed it in a cartoon style. In 1957, the animal acquired aggressive features: menacingly raised eyebrows, intently following eyes, and a mouth twisted in a roar. The tiger’s head is shown in full face and has a small cap with the letter “A,” which denotes the name of the city and university. In this form, the emblem existed until 1970 inclusive. Then it was replaced by another brand name.

1971 – today

They are placed in strict sequence, as they are read: in the foreground – “A,” in the background – “U.” Painted in the official colors of the sports department – orange (burnt orange) and dark blue.
