Meaning and History

Fairleigh Dickinson Knights Logo History

The Knights mascot is an original character named Nitro, also known as Knightro. But he did not find reflection on the sports logo. A horse is depicted on the brand name, not a knight’s one, but a chess one. The figure is turned left and painted in blue with white contours. Its lower part is covered by the word “Knights,” arched in the shape of a rainbow. In this case, the first and last letter is uppercase, and all the rest are lowercase.

In 1996-2003, this was the version of the emblem used. Then additional inscriptions appeared on it: “Fairleigh” and “Dickinson.” They are located to the right and left of the horse’s head. The dark blue color turned blue; everything else has not changed.
