Meaning and History

Dayton Flyers Logo History
Evolution of the Dayton Flyers Logo

The emblem of inter-university teams is made in an abstract style. It does not contain images of aircraft, pilots, or wings. The flight theme is expressed allegorically, through associative graphic images. For example, in 1995-2013 on the logo was the inscription โ€œDayton Flyersโ€ with upper and lower underlining. The logo looked dynamic because the words were at an angle of about 40 degrees, and two diagonal lines were expanding upward.

In 2014, the flow changed: 160over90 agency developed a fresh concept, inspired by the symbols of aviation brands. The new emblem consisted of a stylized letter โ€œDโ€ and three blue stripes symbolizing the wing. Moreover, the designers used the font Vitesse, whose name is translated from French as โ€œspeed.โ€ In 2015, the blue elements turned red, which caused conflicting reviews.
