Meaning and History

Houston Baptist Huskies Logo History

Given the team’s nickname, it’s quite logical that its emblem features a husky. More precisely, only its head, which is turned to face forward. The artists dispensed with details, emphasizing only the characteristic dark lines on the forehead and the specific shape of the eyes. This immediately makes it clear to which breed the dog belongs.

At the top is the abbreviation “HBU,” short for “Houston Baptist University.” The lower part of the emblem is occupied by the word “Huskies,” decorated with vertical and horizontal serifs. Both inscriptions are positioned diagonally and read from bottom to top. The palette is predominantly blue. There’s almost no orange: it outlines the letters “HBU.”
