Meaning and History
1982-2004 logo Is a combination of a green star with a yellow ribbon and the word “George Mason.” The five-pointed geometric figure is located in the upper left corner. From it, two wide curved lines are interrupted in the middle. Uneven displacement creates a movement effect. The sports team names are at the bottom and are in thin serif letters.
The emblem, presented in 2005, differs significantly from the previous one. It also has a star, but this time it is painted in two colors at once – black and orange. This combination of shades makes the geometric figure appear three-dimensional because the rays are divided into two contrasting parts. A wide green-white zigzag with an orange outline extends from the star. Two plaques occupy the lower half of the logo with the words “Mason” and “Patriots.”
