Meaning and History

Bentley Falcons Logo History

Since 1988, the letter “B” has become the central element of the university’s sports emblem. In the first version, a falcon, the symbol of Waltham’s teams, is placed against its background. The powerful bird is depicted flying upward with lightning in its taloned feet. The diagonal trajectory of motion indicates the aspiration to ascend to overcome a great height. The “B” is surrounded by an open loop, highlighting the sleekness of the 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 main role to the uppercase letter. In the current version, it’s placed on a shield, vertically divided into two equal parts. The right side is black with a dark gray border; the left is blue with a white stroke. The color palette of the “B” is monochromatic. The upper and lower elements of the letter are elongated.
