Meaning and History
Since 1988, the letter “B” has become the central element of the university sports emblem. In the first version, a falcon is placed on its background – a symbol of the Waltham teams. A powerful bird is depicted flying upward with lightning in its clawed legs. The diagonal trajectory of movement indicates the desire to take off to overcome a great height. “B” is circled by an open loop, emphasizing the streamlining of semi ovals. The middle part closes and extends beyond the front legs, forming a small protruding element.
In 2013, the sports department revised the logo, giving the leading role to a capital letter. In the current version, it is on the shield, vertically divided into two equal parts. The right one is black with a dark gray edging; the left one is blue with a white stroke. The color palette “B” is monochrome. The upper and lower elements of the letter are elongated.
