Meaning and History
The emblem of 1966 is made in a cartoon style. It depicts the sports department’s mascot – the peregrine falcon, the fastest species from the falcon family. It was approved in the 1950th and has since been always used in logos. In 2006, he received the title of Best Collegiate Mascot (at the NCA Cheer Camp), becoming the best sports symbol.
In the original version, the bird is located above the university’s abbreviated name – “BGSU.” The peregrine falcon has a huge beak, spread wings, a formidable look, powerful and clawed legs. The primary colors are orange and brown.
1966 – 1979
1980 – 2005
2006 – present
The next version is dated the 1980th year. She is radically different from her predecessor. Firstly, a strict style. Secondly, brevity. There are no unnecessary details on it – only a stylized image of a feathered predator. The drawing is done with medium-wide orange lines.
The actual logo contains two parts: text and graphic. It represents the abbreviation “BG,” connected in the form of a monogram, because of which a formidable peregrine Falcon peeps. It consists of different-format brown-orange stripes. The letters have sharp serifs at the ends, resembling a beak and claws.
