The Georgia State Panthers logo resembles a child’s carnival mask. Despite its simple cartoonish style, the panther symbolizes danger. It menacingly hisses, displaying sharp fangs and pressing its ears against its head. Its appearance conveys: do not attack me, or I will retaliate. Through this image, sports teams demonstrate their readiness for tough competition.

Georgia State Panthers: Brand overview

Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.
One of the permanent members of NCAA Division I is Georgia State University. The university fields sixteen teams, known as the Georgia State Panthers. Its sports program has been around for a long time, though it only received Division I accreditation after 1963. The university is now part of the Sun Belt Conference and Coastal Collegiate Sports Association. Until 2013, the teams were part of the Colonial Athletic Association and, even earlier, in the TAAC/Atlantic Sun and Sun Belt Conference. The nickname Panthers was approved in 1963 and replaced the old name, Ramblers.

Meaning and History

Georgia State Panthers Logo History

The blue panther depicted on many emblems represents the mascot Pounce. The 1993 drawing was quite caricatured: a red circle featured the animal’s head and a paw with a raised finger. After the logo redesign in 1997, the style remained unchanged. Artists turned the head in profile and removed the other elements. The same applies to the 2002 version: the panther received a smirk-smile, and the inscription “Georgia State” completed it all.

The first significant change occurred in 2009. The updated design lost its previous cartoonishness. The animal looked unrealistic, but the image no longer resembled a caricature. The team name shifted down. In 2014, another similar emblem appeared – with the panther’s head and the words “Georgia State,” underscored by a wide red line.
