Meaning and history

AIC Yellow Jackets Logo history


Since at least 2001, the American International Yellow Jackets logo has featured the wasp mascot, Rex. Rex has always been running, and its sting has been pretty visible. However, it hasn’t looked exactly the same. In 2009, the shape of the sting and the stripes was slightly modified.
As the result of a more recent update, the sting has been moved backward, while the wasp put on black shorts.
The choice of colors featured on the AIC Yellow Jackets logo – black, white, and gold – fits the wasp theme perfectly. The Logo Usage & Brand Standards Manual recommends using the shade of gold with the following coordinates: Pantone 1235, Hex FFCC33.
