Florida Atlantic Owls are ten women’s and eight men’s teams representing Florida Atlantic University at the NCAA Division I (FBS) competitions and participate in Conference USA. The sports program appeared in 1979. The owl mascot was adopted much earlier, even when the university was opened. The fact is that these birds have always been found on the educational institution’s territory, and the construction of new campuses could harm their natural habitat. Therefore, the National Audubon Society recognized the university grounds as the official “sanctuary” of the owl to prevent buildings’ erection.

Meaning and History

Florida Atlantic Owls Logo History

The logo, adopted in 1994, depicts a flying owl. She spread her wings wide and put forward her paws. Across is the inscription “FAU” – a reference to the name of the university. Red slanted letters have small serifs and a white outline with dark blue shadows. The latter gives them a barely noticeable 3D effect.

The redesign led to the fact that in 2005 sports teams had a completely new emblem, not similar to the previous one. This is a sketchy head of an owl, consisting of a horizontal ellipse, semicircles, and other geometric shapes in white and blue. It is supplemented by a small inscription “Florida Atlantic” on a red ribbon and large letters “FAU.” An interesting solution was the wings on the sides of the “F” and “U.” They indicate a close relationship between the university and the owls.
