Meaning and History

Detroit Titans Logo History

In 1991, the sports department adopted a logo with the inscription “UDM Titans.” The abbreviation is on top, and the team nickname is on the bottom, in a blue rectangle with a red frame. In the letter “D” lies the helmet of the ancient Greek warriors, decorated in the middle with a large crest. The shape of the head is also traced.

In 2008, artists depicted other military attributes on the emblem: a sword and a shield. They are located in the background. The inscription “Detroit Titans” is pushed forward. The second word looks bright thanks to the red color and the unusual font. A zigzag of lightning stretches to the left from the bottom of the letter “S.”

The next logo change took place in 2016. Designers expanded the inscription by adding the word “Mercy” to “Detroit.” Also, designers darkened shades of red and blue to match the school’s official palette.
