Davidson Wildcats Logo

Davidson Wildcats Logo
Throughout the last 35 years, the Davidson Wildcats logo has been pretty consistent in its core. However, there have been a couple of subtle yet notable modifications.

Meaning and history

Davidson Wildcats logo history


The Davidson Wildcats logo introduced in 1985 featured the head of a wildcat in black and white. Behind it, a red square was placed. The square was standing on one of its angles.
The following emblem, which was adopted in 2010, has preserved the same structure. However, the shade of red has grown somewhat cooler, while the cat has been redrawn. There are fewer details and the cat, on the whole, looks less realistic.
