Belmont Bruins Logo-1981

Since 1981, the Belmont Bruins logo has featured an aggressive bear with its mouth open. It was not the same bear, though. On the 1981 emblem, the bear is facing slightly to the right, and its mouth is half-open. The eyes are almost closed. The word “Belmont” is placed above, while the word “Bruins” can be seen below.

2003 – Now

On the current emblem featuring a noble shade of red, the bear’s mouth is opened much wider showing the red tongue. The word “Belmont” in red is positioned below, and it is much larger than “Bruins.”
