2005 – 2014

The emblem was used almost half a century until in 2005 it was phased out by a completely different one. This time, the bulldog occupied less space and looked more like a real dog than a player. To the left, the lettering “Drake Bulldogs” could be seen, where the first word was by far larger than the second one.

2015 – Today
