Clarkson Golden Knights Logo

The Clarkson Golden Knights badge features a combination of a graphical emblem and a banner with the lettering, executed in dark green color, placed on a yellow geometric crest, with the square top, and horizontally extended triangular bottom part.

The yellow crest featured a voluminous frame in black and delicate white detail, which added a “gloss” to its surface, making the whole image more vivid and energetic. As for the green part of the logo, its upper part depicted a fully armored knight with a large yellow feather coming out of its massive helmet up and curving to the left.

The upper level of the lettering, composed of the uppercase “Clarkson” in a bold square serif typeface, was outlined in white and yellow, and placed on a horizontally stretched rectangular banner in the same shade of green, with its bottom border slightly arched up. The banner was underlined by a delicate green ribbon with a bold yellow “Golden Knights”, written over it in the same style of a typeface, but with solid letters, not outlined.
