Meaning and History

Creighton Bluejays Logo History

The image of a blue jay is present on almost every emblem of the sports department. Since 1990, and over the following years, she was an anthropomorphic character. Artists depicted a bird with hands instead of wings and with expressive emotional facial expressions. And they “dressed” her in blue shorts and a white T-shirt with the letter “C” on her chest.

In 1999-2012 teams used the inscription “Jays” as a logo. The word rises diagonally, symbolizing growth, and success. The two central letters are interconnected, the extreme “J” and “s” stand separately. The font resembles a handwritten one with characteristic lines of uneven thickness and smooth bends.

In 2013, developers modernized the design by replacing the long “Jays” inscription with the laconic letter “C” (short for “Creighton”). But the emblem is far from minimalism because there is one more element on it – the head of the blue jay, which peeks from the “C.” The bird looks menacing and warlike. It’s also quite bright because to create a 3D effect; the artists used several colors. The letter is also unusually framed: it has sharp serifs and two blue contours.
