Meaning and History

Clarkson Golden Knights Logo History

The emblem itself depicts a knight – the mascot of the educational institution, who takes the stage during hockey matches. The Clarkson Golden Knights department is named after this medieval character. The original nickname was first used in October 1950, and a month later, it was officially approved. This is even reflected in the logo: the word “Clarkson” is located in the center, on a large elongated rectangle, and “Golden Knights” just below, on a ribbon with curled edges.

The overall background is a large yellow shield with a concave top and pointed base. It fits into the knightly theme and balances the figure in terms of proportionality.
