Meaning and History

Bowling Green Falcons Logo History

The emblem from 1966 is made in a cartoonish style. It depicts the mascot of the sports department – the peregrine falcon, the fastest species in the falcon family. It was approved in the 1950s and has since been constantly used in logos. In 2006, it received the title of Best Collegiate Mascot (at the NCA Cheer Camp festival), becoming the best sports symbol.

In the original version, the bird is placed above the abbreviated name of the university – “BGSU.” The peregrine falcon has a huge beak, spread wings, a menacing look, and powerful, clawed feet. The primary colors are orange and brown.

Bowling Green Falcons Logo 2006-Present

The next version dates back to 1980. It is radically different from its predecessor. Firstly, in its strict style. Secondly, in its conciseness. There are no superfluous details – only a stylized image of the feathered predator. The drawing is done in medium-width orange lines.

The logo itself consists of two parts: textual and graphic. It represents the abbreviation “BG,” connected in the form of a monogram, from which a menacing peregrine falcon looks out. It consists of brown-orange stripes of various formats. The letters have sharp serifs at the ends, reminiscent of a beak and claws.
