Meaning and history

Boston College Eagles Logo history


In 1946, the Boston College Eagles logo featured a large eagle standing between the letters “B” and “C.” In 1962, it was replaced by a different design. The letters were positioned diagonally, with a rather vague eagle on the forefront.
The 2001 logo also features the letters “B” and “C,” which are now maroon with a yellow and black outline. On the forefront, you can again see Baldwin the Eagle, the university’s mascot. In contrast to the original eagle introduced in 1946, Baldwin does not look like a cartoon character. Now, the Boston College Eagles logo features a noble creature in flight, with the maroon body and wings and white tail and head.
