Meaning and history

Duquesne Dukes logo history


The 1982 Duquesne Dukes logo combined a large red “D” with the word “Dukes” on the forefront. The 1999 emblem was also a typographic one. In 2007, the team updated the style of the lettering and added a gentleman to their logo.
In 2019, the old Duquesne Dukes logo was replaced by a stylized “D.” Although the letter looks unique, it is also rather minimalistic.
