The Dartmouth Big Green logo is as neutral as possible regarding content and meaning. The large letter “D” on the pedestal symbolizes the team’s championship, and the dark green hue in the emblem corresponds to the color of their sports uniforms. It looks fresh and is associated with novelty.

Almost 75% of Dartmouth College students go in for some form of sports. Therefore, the institution has several dozen university and club teams that represent it in the NCAA Division I. Almost all teams participate in the Ivy League. Still, there are exceptions: hockey players compete at the ECAC Hockey conference.

Meaning and History

Dartmouth Big Green Logo History

The Dartmouth Big Green sports department is named after a color official at the university, approved back in 1866. The previous pseudonym was Indian, but it was considered inappropriate. In 1971, a local Native American community asked the college administration to abandon their traditional symbols. At the same time, the educational institution removed the Indian logo from its outfit and uniform.

Conservative students and alumni tried to return the old emblem, despite the scandal that flared around it. But they failed to do so – the university management approved the new graphic symbol. To please everyone, the students chose a neutral option: a large green letter “D.” There are no rounded elements in the polygonal font. Even intra-letter lumen is not oval, as usual, but rectangular.

The artists erected the “D” on an improvised pedestal, and the full name of the sports department was placed below it. “Dartmouth” is inside a green quadrangle, “Big Green” – against the background of a white upside-down trapeze. The fonts have changed a bit: the inside letters “D” now looks like a flag, and the nickname is written in a rounded grotesque.
