Meaning and history

Boise State Broncos Logo history


One of the older logos featured a prancing stallion. On the background, there was a map of the state of Idaho. The letters “BSJ” could be seen in the bottom right corner. The design was used as the Boise State Broncos logo in 1974-2001.
In 2002, the Boise State Broncos introduced a different logo. This time, you could see only the head of the horse. This approach gave the designer a chance to make the expression of the horse’s muzzle more visible and apparent. As a result, the emblem looked more emotional and menacing than its predecessor.
The subtle update that took place in 2012 resulted in a clearer and more minimalistic logo as the lettering “Boise State” was removed.
