Primary symbol

The focal point of the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp logo is (surprise, surprise!) a shrimp. To create a visual link with the name of the team, the designer drew the creature’s body in the form of the letter “J” (for “Jacksonville”). The water on both sides pays homage to Jacksonville’s nickname the River City.
