Meaning and History

Princeton Tigers Logo History

What are the Princeton Tigers?

Princeton Tigers Logo 1960

The tiger did not become the mascot of the university right away. But already in 1911, two tigers replaced lions presented to the university by its famous alumnus Wilson, who became the president of the United States. The animal got into the team logo even later.

Initially, the colors of the university were chosen: orange and black. They were received from the British Crown, along with the coat of arms, even before the American Revolution. So when the question of the mascot came up, it was the tiger that suited the existing “coloring.” It became the official animal in the second half of the 19th century, although it was not placed on the logo for almost a hundred years.

The first emblem was a large orange polyhedral letter P with a black outline. The element pointed to the city’s name and the university and resembled a tiger only remotely.

1984 – 2004

The 1984 logo was the exact opposite of the previous one. While the first sign emphasized the educational institution, the new sign gave place to animal power and strength. The image featured a real tiger jumping.

The logo looked very belligerent and aggressive. Demonstrated the power and will to win. Only the color scheme was left from the university.

2004 – today
