Florida A&M University has its own sports program, which covers volleyball, athletics, tennis, swimming, softball, basketball, golf, soccer, and baseball. In total, she has eleven teams united under the general name Florida A&M Rattlers. Teams participate in Division I of the NCAA and are also part of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
Meaning and History
The central image of the Florida A&M Rattlers logos is a rattlesnake because the mascot of athletes chose this particular reptile. On the brand name 2000-2012, she is depicted in full length. The body bends in rings; its head is raised, its mouth is open. Artists detailed the texture of the skin, focusing on a forked tongue and two sharp fangs. Above in the form of a semicircle is the abbreviation “FAMU,” formed from the university’s name. The palette includes yellow and green.
In 2013, sports teams adopted a new logo. This is, in fact, a mini-fragment from the previous version: the head of a rattlesnake with an open mouth. As before, she shows her teeth and sticks out a thin tongue. The skin looks naturalistic: the creators of the logo in detail depicted black patterns and scales.
