Meaning and history

Alabama State Hornets Logo history


The primary Alabama State Hornets logo consists of the letters “ASU” and a hornet.
Taking into consideration the mere surface they occupy, the letters dominate the emblem. And yet, as they are just black, they seem to move somewhere to the background in comparison with the hornet, which is bright and has a pronounced 3D effect to it.
The hornet appears to be flying forward from between the two ends of the letter “U.” Its thin paws are clearly visible, as are its gray eyes. You can even make out the somewhat menacing expression of its muzzle on the Alabama State Hornets logo. The horizontal bar on the “A” has a sharp end “rhyming” with the shape of the insect’s body.
